|Message||Minutes after I wrote that we had to cancel our trip to England due to a medical emergency, I found this poem in a file of one of my ancestors:|
Just once to gaze on English landscape fair,
Through deep green-shadowed lanes to stray;
Just once to breathe the soft sea-laden air,
In hallowed English fanes to pray!
Just once to touch the people's ancient life,
Where yet it lingers far from toil and strife.
Thus oft we crave -- we of the English race,
Our souls deep-rooted in the past --
Not loving less our own abiding place
The young land where our lot is cast --
Our heritage -- a good land fair to see
Through all the years still this her glory be -
Unbroken faith -- unshaken loyalty.
Toronto M. Algon Kirby
