#NaPoWriMo Day TwentyFour – “To England…”

Todays entry was inspired by yesterday (23rd April) being St. Georges Day in my beautiful home country of England. As much as I love my new digs in Australia (been here 10 years now) England will always have a special place in my heart…

B     By and by, I’ll be home in those woodlands

R     remembering myself in yesterday’s

E     earldoms, skipping along the ruins – gran

A     alway there, with her sea candy in May.

T     too many tales and stories to relive

H     happy, we were kites floating in the sky.

E      every memory and moment was a gift

E      Etched in my soul; eternal in my eyes.

N     now I’ve departed my darling island

G     grateful I am to be a part of her

L     long may she breath through my feet and my hands

A    albion, my soul you have conquered.

N    next time I see you it shan’t be for long

D    don’t be disheartened for I live your song.

I like to think I'm a story teller. I love stories. I believe the world is filled with stories just waiting to be told and learned. I enjoy travelling down the road less travelled, with my iPhone and journal in each hand. Here you'll find all my poetic musings... Enjoy!

  1. Lovely Charlie. Do you still support England in the cricket? Do you have an AFL team to follow? You clearly portray your love of your home country, I like how you have done this. Well done.

    1. Thank you.

      I’m not a follower of cricket which is probably good wouldn’t want to split my loyalties between my two favourite countries. I do follow English football; I’m a Chelsea girl and I am a passive supporter of the Tigers 🙂

    1. Lol, ah the Rugby… although I don’t really follow… I was known to go for the Welsh team in my younger days.
