To England

by Glen Hague
(Lisbon, Portugal)


I will take you with me to the place where I am from,
Though I roam the world now, it’s the place where I belong.
Wind and rain, it’s true,
And summer skies of blue.
White clouds upon the purple hills,
Streams winding through the greenest fields,
So please come back with me
To England, to England, my homeland that is blessed,
In England, my England, the diamond of the west.

We could walk across the hills to far off Cadbury,
And Tintagel’s mount recalls an ancient tragedy.
Walking through the vales
I remember tales
Of magic and mystery,
The land brings it all back to me,
So please come back with me
To England, to England, my homeland that is blessed,
To England, my England, the diamond of the west.
