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.

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.
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 🙂
Great testimony to England! and…
Oh Bah Humbug @ supporting England in Football! LOL *chuckles*
What about the Rugby?
Lol, ah the Rugby… although I don’t really follow… I was known to go for the Welsh team in my younger days.
Despite living in Australia, I support the New Zealand Team. *looks around and whispers* Don’t tell anyone… lol
