"The Homes of England" by Felicia Dorothea Hemans

by MyNameIsOzymandias-

The stately homes of England

How beautiful they stand!

Amidst their tall ancestral trees,

O'er all the pleasant land!

The deer across their green sward bound

Through shade and sunny gleam,

And the swan glides past them with the sound

Of some rejoicing stream.

The merry homes of England!

Around their hearths by night,

What gladsome looks of household love

Meet in the ruddy light!

There woman's voice flows forth in song,

Or childhood's tale is told;

Or lips move tunefully along

Some glorious page of old.

The cottage homes of England!

By thousands on her plains,

They are smiling o'er the silv'ry brook,

And round the hamlet-fanes;

Through glowing orchards forth they peep,

Each from its nook of leaves;

And fearless there the lowly sleep,

As the bird beneath their eaves.

The free fair homes of England!

Long, long in hut and hall

May hearts of native proof be rear'd

To guard each hallow'd wall.

And green for ever be the groves,

And bright the flow'ry sod,

Where first the child's glad spirit loves

Its country and its God.
