PORTRAIT OF THIS GREEN AND PLEASANT LAND

Rolling hills and valleys green
What lovely places to have seen
Amongst the wondrous countryside
With winding roads and rivers wide
And as the morning sun shines bright
The land receives a lustrous light
Awakening the trees and streams
So every colour breathes and gleams
The mountain tops with snow so white
Such a glowing wondrous sight
And through the fields of corn and wheat
The rural vision of a street
Swaying on the summer breeze
Wind is drifting through the trees
Mountain water crisp and clear
Always sparkles every year
Even when cold winters blast
Freezes over parts so fast
Then when springtime reappears
And the snow just disappears
Vibrant life is born once more
Bluebells .. lilies … carpet floors
Trees again will lose their strife
Britain’s beauty springs to life
Inspiring Constable to frame
Giving rise to such acclaim
Turner too saw golden skies
Reflecting all seen in his eyes
Like the artist’s loving hand
Showing such a pleasant land
