I can't trace a poem, from mu mother's, now long lost, poetry book. I thought it was called 'Song of England' as that is a much repeated refrain:

There is a song of England none shall ever sing,
The trostle has a stave of it,
The sea a breaking wave of it
It mounts into the sunrise
Like a falcon on the wing....

Yet even love the soul of it,
Can never know the whole of it.
Or see the distant goal of it
Beyond the sunset glow...

Does anyone know it, please?
