There’s Nowhere Quite Like England

There's nowhere quite like England!

This is a poem that I wrote many years ago but I have since updated by added another verse. For my 50th birthday, my sister and brother-in-law recorded my mum reading it for me and provided some background music too. I have put it at the end of the poem for you to enjoy.

 

There’s Nowhere quite like England

There’s Nowhere quite like England

with its counties and its shires

The ancient, rolling countryside

The marshes and the mires

💐

There’s nowhere quite like England

The coastline and the sea

The churches and cathedrals

All steeped in history

💐

There’s nowhere quite like England

The people are unique

We have our ‘quaint’ traditions

And like the Queen we speak!!

💐

There’s nowhere quite like England

The climate so insane

One minute, brilliant sunshine

The next it’s lashing rain!

💐

There’s nowhere quite like England

We love a cup of tea

Fish and chips and clotted cream

And juicy strawberries!

💐

There’s nowhere quite like England

And, although it’s very small

To me, it is quite frankly

The most wonderful place of all
