A land that inspired
silken bards in hordes


Ancient tongues lost their
battles against this celtic flair


Sons of this cold but pretty isle
in conquest have outdone Alexander’s guile


Viking, Roman, German assault
revisited this isle but conquered it not


Not lacking in ingenuity or cunning
went on in rampage and compassion winning


Though conquered lands would in
control remain not as times did the armies in


What the majesty’s much prided armies could not win
Minds and hearts in multitude fair language did win

Love & Grace
