A Welshman stood at the golden gate, his head was bent and low. He meekly asked the man of fate, The way that he should go. 'What have you done' St. Peter said 'To gain admission here?' 'I merely mined for coal' he said, 'for many and many a year.' St. Peter opened wide the gate, And softly tolled the bell. 'Come and choose your harp' he said 'You've had your share of hell.' Anon
Remembering the miners of Gleision -

There's a cry in the Swansea Valley, tears stream in the west, Mourning the heroes, that wear the pit vest, Underground grafters, always put in a shift, Below in that hillside, in that deep, dark drift, They ain't coming home to their children or wives, The mine once again, takes away cherished lives, The coalfields of world , all unite in your mourn, We're all of the same breed, we're pit village born, May the heroes sleep peacefully and families stay strong. So So Sad, R.I.P Boys xx
