Yesterday was St George’s day so as a patriotic town crier I thought it was time to try something new.
I wrote my first rhyming proclamation and delivered it in Windsor a number of times.
St George’s Day 2013
Oyez, Oyez, Oyez
Citizens of Windsor
and visitors from both far and near
This day above all others
is a great day to be here.
For today is Shakespeare’s birthday
and St George’s Day besides
When we celebrate this sceptred isle,
This other Eden, demi-paradise,
It is good to be in England
Though not always blessed with sun
We know how to brew a decent pint
And how to have some fun.
Enjoy your day here in Royal Windsor
As the great Bard says
“The world is your oyster”,
“Heaven give you
many, many merry days!”
God save the Queen
