#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.

    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.

      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 🙂
