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.

If I should die, think only this of me:
That there's some corner of a foreign field
That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
