DUTY BECOMES HER a royal tribute

An empire on which the sun never set became her commonwealth. A kingdom of four crowns ,close held her fiefdom and her realm. Politicos by the dozen ,came and went her sense of duty stayed,from heaven sent. Family failures&tragedy tested this resolve for many years ' horribilis'. Ninety now ,to Elizabeth we lift a glass long may she live&reign in 'annus mirabilis'
