I dream an England

I dream an England
of pleasant breezes and nourishing rains;
where the sun warms the heart and illumines the mind
and finds my spirit rising
as the rose inhales the earth and sky,
beyond where flag and anthem fly.
I dream an England
where the holly and the oak embrace
and outward face together, the world to measure
wider than her grade of fruit.
I dream an England
of rivers, where memory flows
in clear pursuit of wisdom; where empathy brooks
and inspiration springs.
I dream an England
where integrity sings from the very rocks
and every pebble speaks dignity and honour;
where the civic climate makes us stronger
and friction knows civility and growth is grace.
I dream an England
where the Commons teems with life; where thrives
a state of every colour and each Being is valued
as a work of art and race is what Love does to the heart.
