    • Too knackered after gardening to stay up and watch this on Sunday. Anyone see it? Any good?
    • The Woman  in White - Wilkie Collins
    • See you the ferny ride that steals
      Into the oak-woods far?
      O that was whence they hewed the keels
      That rolled to Trafalgar.   And mark you where the ivy clings
      To Bayharn's mouldering walls?
      O there we cast the stout railings
      That stand around St. Paul's.   See you the dimpled track that runs
      All hollow through the wheat?
      O that was where they hauled the guns
      That smote King Philip's fleet.   (Out of the Weald, the secret Weald,
      Men sent in ancient years,
      The horse-shoes red at Flodden Field,
      The arrows at Poitiers!)   See you our little mill that clacks,
      So busy by the brook?
      She has ground her corn and paid her tax
      Ever since Domesday Book.   See you our stilly woods of oak,
      And the dread ditch beside?
      O that was where the Saxons broke
      On the day that Harold died.   See you the windy levels spread
      About the gates of Rye?
      O that was where the Northmen fled,
      When Alfred's ships came by.   See you our pastures wide and lone,
      Where the red oxen browse?
      O there was a City thronged and known,
      Ere London boasted a house.   And see you, after rain, the trace
      Of mound and ditch and wall?
      O that was a Legion's camping-place,
      When Caesar sailed from Gaul.   And see you marks that show and fade,
      Like shadows on the Downs?
      O they are the lines the Flint Men made,
      To guard their wondrous towns.   Trackway and Camp and City lost,
      Salt Marsh where now is corn -
      Old Wars, old Peace, old Arts that cease,
      And so was England born.   She is not any common Earth,
      Water or wood or air,
      But Merlin's Isle of Gramarye,
      Where you and I will fare.   Rudyard Kipling - 'Puck's Song'  
    •   St George was out walking He met a dragon on a hill, It was wise and wonderful Too glorious to kill   It slept amongst the wild thyme Where the oxlips and violets grow Its skin was a luminous fire That made the English landscape glow   Its tears were England’s crystal rivers Its breath the mist on England’s moors Its larder was England’s orchards, Its house was without doors   St George was in awe of it It was a thing apart He hid the sleeping dragon Inside every English heart   So on this day let’s celebrate England’s valleys full of light, The green fire of the landscape Lakes shivering with delight   Let’s celebrate St George’s Day, The dragon in repose; The brilliant lark ascending, The yew, the oak, the rose   The True Dragon by Brian Patten
