Mysterious pool, sleep within thy cell
Yet dost thou move as in a gentle dream;
Soothed by the murmurs of the passing stream ,
That fills with music this deep shaded dell ;
Fain would I of thy healing virtues tell,
And of the time when I a little lad ,
Came here,with one,whose days and nights were sad,
And listened long and anxious for the knell,
of all his hopes. But when the roses blew ,
And swallows many round the the old eaves flew
We sought thee, beaded, crimson crested pool,
Soft , limpid bath, though badst the fever cool ,
And weary aching limbs forget it's pain;
We sought thy balmy spring , nor did we seek in vain .
Why not come and see the Thermal Spring. The open door event will take place at the Green Flag Park at Taff's Well on 8th September 2pm -5pm.
