.âââ DISILLUSION. [A Rhondda soldier iljf-a letter homo says he prefers "dear "id Ponty" to Jerusalem.] Last night I lay a-slecping, And had a dreapa so,fair, I'm stationed at Jerusalem- One of the Welsh lads there. My dream was*f tlieltiomelai-id, For all my thbtigbts. ifrould^-reatV o Round the familiar mountains.. That guard old Pontypridd. I'd often read of SaleJll With all its holy spells, But never tho\ht rd wâlk its streets Or smell its nasT^, smells, And jostle with the motley throne- That squabble, squall, and seeth»'. 'Tis worse (look you) than Sunday- ( night At dear old Pontypridd. I aren't a thoughtless feIlow- I love my Bible well But blow me if I'd give a bob In Zion for to dwell! I want some cleanliness and peace. And tidy air to breathe. Jerusalem may do for some, But give me Pontypridd. -ldris. in the "Wesetrn Mail. âââââ
