'For Harry and St. George!'

These hills, this soil, the overarching sky; 
These cliffs, this sea, the plaintiff seagull's cry;
The farrowed fields, the coppiced woods,
the market towns and neighbourhoods -
The city streets, the Cotswold towns
The moors and heaths, the wind-swept downs:
This land, this home - this England.

"Be England what she will. With all her faults, she is my country still".
Charles Churchill (1731-1764) - English poet

Happy St Georges Day!
