Long may it reign.
With Winston Churchill’s bust back in the White House, one prays it is not too late to celebrate our friendship.
For our British friends, a favorite quote from Richard II, describing your kingdom:
This royal throne of kings, this sceptered 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.
Near the end of the play, Shakespeare has Richard sigh, “I wasted time, now time doth waste me…”
God save the Queen and keep her country safe from Charles.
