England Mine

Those lush green hills
Bank on bank of daffodils
Sentient wooded glade
Bluebells hide in shade
Oh this England mine
Once upon a time

Fields of golden corn
An ever fragrant dawn
Skylarks sing on high
Peace in cloudless sky
Oh this England mine
Once upon a time

Babbling waters flow
In the evenings glow
Stand and cast the fly
The wily trout to sly
Oh this England mine
Once upon a time

In another land far away
Life and death doth play
Of dried earth and baked blood
Yet at night the memories flood
Oh sweet England mine
Once upon a time

    I remember being invaded by England in 1964. The greatest invasion in history. I'd love to relive every moment. Even in our country music Roger Miller wrote "England Swings". One of my dreams is a long visit someday. Vince
