England

Land of Hope and Glory,
Mother of the Free,
How shall we extol thee, 
Who are born of thee? 
Wider still and wider 
Shall thy bounds be set; 
God, who made thee mighty, 
Make thee mightier yet.

Arthur Christopher Benson (1862-1925)

Beautiful Railway Bridge of the Silv'ry Tay!
Alas! I am very sorry to say,
That ninety lives have been taken away,
On the last Sabbath day of 1879,
Which will be remember'd for a very long time.

Between my finger and my thumb   

The squat pen rests; snug as a gun.
Under my window, a clean rasping sound   
When the spade sinks into gravelly ground:   
My father, digging. I look down
