>C LINES ON THE TOWN OF HAVERFOKDWEST BY A VISITOR-H. J. W. There's a snug little town situate in South Wales, Surrounded -on ail sides by hills and by dales; 'Tis famons for qniet, yes cbeerfnl and gay, And all that bewitches invites you to stay. In its midst is a castle-a building of old, Jts site is commanding, majestic, and bold. This once spacious structure, now left to decay, As if it bad only been the work of a day, Proves clearly the people not ia castles depend, Nor have they occasion themselves to defend. Hospitality their motto, and peaceful their mind, They are friendly to all, and to none are unkind. On the banks of the Cleddau live Priory stands,- A relict of Popery's sway o'er these lands, Held sacred by Papist, but by Cromwell despised, As a mask to untruth in religion diguised. 'Twas demolished by him from thorough disgust, In such Popish delusions the people should trust. Now stript of its sanctity, deprived of its Prior, In whose stead thrives ttaeijay, the thorn, and the iferier. Much more might be this town to its praise, Were the writer not sure fits own merits must raise Without his assistance, or the aid of his pen, The highest-, the warmest attachment from men: He would tail to do justice were he to write To the praise of the people from morning till night; But suffice ft to say, with much kindness they're blest, And friendship's not scarce in HaverlordweBt. •
