Happy St Georges Day

I noted I was the only one wearing a red rose today at Church, or among the few I met or our weekly wander round the cemetery. But, that won't stop me wearing it for the rest of the day ... and again, next year!

"This royal throne of kings, this sceptred isle,
This earth of majesty, this seat of Mars,
This other Eden, demi-paradise,
This fortress built by Nature for herself
Against infection and the hand of war,
This happy breed of men, this little world,
This precious stone set in the silver sea,
Which serves it in the office of a wall
Or as a moat defensive to a house,
Against the envy of less happier lands,
This blessed plot, this earth, this realm, this England."

(Shakespeare's Richard II)

"Cry God for Harry, England, and Saint George!"
(Shakespeare's Henry V, Act III)

The other good point about St. George's Day is that it means I have popped into LJ, and managed to catch up with a few of your posts, and have even snagged a film meme from petzipellepingo ... the only problem is that it does call them movies, not films!!
