Nottinghamshire Legend


~~ hello children ~~

Robin Hood and his merry merry men
A mystical legend; thrills without end.
Sherwood Forest, and green hills of home
Nottinghamshire parkland, once my abode.

Bows and arrows were quite the 'in-thing'
Robin Hood armour was fit for the king;
Motorcars for travel were never seen, as
Knights on grey horses reigned o'er the green.

Sometimes the men would steal and plunder
But Maid Marian soon tore them asunder...
These were magical days in many ways,
No atom bombs and no internet craze.

Medieval chivalry was always at hand
In Sherwood Forest, our own wonderland.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
