And a further entry in a newspaper of 1862 gives it as a poem attributed to "R.F.G." Cardiff Times, 22nd August 1862 (Welsh Newspapers Online - The National Library of Wales).

This version does not have the first verse of the others. All versions differ slighly in the words. I'll see if I can put up a comparison.
