Elizabeth Regina

The concrete jungle is far away

Balmoral in the mist

Mother Nature all around

Elizabeth’s place of bliss


I was five and just at school

When Liz came to the throne

All my life a gentle presence

England’s marrowbone


A life of duty since a girl

She had her own romance

Then the sorrows of later life

Her share of charm and chance


Great her love of horses

Truly a country girl

Now an age is ending

Plaintive bagpipe skirl
