Jolly Old England - Poem by Joseph Narusiewicz

Sultry poetry older than Chaucer
Fresh roses for Elizabeth and Victoria
Horse and carriage, chivalry
Bards and skylarks, royal carpets

Protocol with silver trays and tea
Portraits old with ancient ghosts
Castles decor the novels of romance
Gothic knights alive in immortal pages

Green Scotland, tales of noble Wales
Language like the winds of love
Young Keats and brilliant Shakespeare
J R Tolkien with his beloved Hobbits

Westminster Abbey, the Tower of London
Dracula walks your dark streets
Is Dorian Gray the soul of Oscar Wilde?
Jack the Ripper will always stalk

Myth and legend, Shelly and Byron
Oxford, Big Ben and Parliament
The Lake District with Wordsworth
Loch Ness monsters never die

Britannia rules the waves, The Albert Hall
Dickens dines with Charlotte and Emily Bronte
Robin Hood, Sir Lancelot, Sherlock Holmes
Sir Isaac Newton greets the Beatles

England the world salutes you!
