Sonnet 65: On the birth of a new royal baby
A wonderous delight has come to pass
The birth of a baby royal to our Kate;
The whole of the Kingdom will raise a glass
And toast this birth with a feeling so great.
William and Kate are the happy pair,
The whole nation is joyful and happy
The baby born with the greatest of care,
Both have to learn how to change a nappy.
One day he will come to rule the nation
That is steeped in our histories greatness:
No one could rise to a greater station
To learn to rule in grace and stateliness.
So let us celebrate this great event
To a new born babe that was heaven sent.
