He was in great demand as an original and astute preacher until a severe illness left him with impaired speech . He then turned his creative talents to writing poetry , specialising in the strict metres and having his work published in weekly newspapers and Welsh periodicals. He competed at the national eisteddfod and won prizes for englynion and a love-poem. At Pwllheli in 1955 he won the chair for his awdl to ‘ Gwrtheyrn ’. The booklet, Dwy Awdl , contains an awdl by him on ‘ Bro'r Ogofeydd ’ and one by T. Ll. Jones ; and a posthumous collection of his poems was published, entitled Diliau'r Dolydd ( 1964 ).
