Freebies Sunday 25th June


Hi.

Feel free to check out Paul Ainsley on Amazon on Sunday for freebie Kindle ebooks, two poetry collections and a collection of short stories Strange Meeting In A Country Churchyard. These are modern Yorkshire Tales, based there, but quite odd and quirky.

As ever, thank you for reading.

For England Again

I stand upon the hilltop
And stare across this land
A mongrel bred democracy
Held within my hand

This realm it brings me certainty
Identity and faith
History modernity
That nothing can replace

Just like its farmland landscape
Its people weathered too
Toughened by past battles
But readied for the new

Have no doubts my brother
Say what you might say
I trust in ancient wisdoms
Deep hidden in the clay

Hell, I love this country!

What is it?

What is it?
About democracy
That you hate so much
The idea of consent by all
The strong the weak the rich the poor
The man the woman the old the young

What is it?
About happiness and freedom
That you hate so much
The joy on a child’s face
The bond between lovers hand in hand
The infinite possibilities in life

I do not understand such hatred
I never will

For England

I stand upon the hilltop
And stare across this land
A mongrel bred democracy
Held within my hand

This realm it brings me certainty
Identity and faith
History modernity
That nothing can replace

Just like its farmland landscape
Its people weathered too
Toughened by past battles
But readied for the new

Have no doubts my brother
Say what you might say
I trust in ancient wisdoms
Deep hidden in the clay
