Treasure Island

Colin Ian Jeffery

(20th May 1942 / Caterham)

ENGLAND, MY BELOVED ENGLAND


England, my beloved England
Emerald Isle of heart and joy
Home of scholars and dreamers
Men and women with purpose
Standing fast against oppression.

Children from an empire
That once the sun never set upon
All colours, creeds, religions
Mingling to forge the Nation's heart
England, my beloved England.

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

My love is like to ice, and I to fire:
How comes it then that this her cold so great
Is not dissolved through my so hot desire,
But harder grows the more I her entreat?
