Our English Heritage - Poem by Dorothy Durrant

We live in a beautiful part of the world
This land so lush and so green
Beauty surrounds us everywhere
The moors and dales, the babbling brook
The lakes and majestic hills,
The meadows and streams, the rivers too
Where stand the old rustic mills,
The towns and cities with cathedral tall,
The village with church and green,
The quaint thatched cottage with inglenook
And large country house with beams,
The parks and gardens with stately homes
To wander around and explore,
The differing moods of the restless sea
Which surrounds our land and shore
It's a great land to live in
I think you'll agree
This English Island so fine
I trust this is how it will always remain
Until the end of time
