In far-gone times we tilled the soil
Then coal and steel was our main toil.
And where the soil was not so good
Sheep ranged, for our clothes and food.
While artisans sewed and built and carved
Artists performed, and almost starved.
There were shops to run and children to teach
Wood to cut, and fish to reach.
Today what we work at is all quite new:
what once took thousands, now takes few.
For technology has tipped the scales –
And from young minds, comes the wealth of Wales.
