The world is your oyster still life

Today we are very happy to share this lovely patriotic poem written by one of our creative writing members at Open Age. Francis Florent has written many wonderful stories and poems over the past 90 years: from children’s stories for his grandchildren to crime, mystery and adventure stories…

“The world is my oyster” ’tis often said

Our beloved country is its precious pearl.

Where Queen Elizabeth reigns supreme

Her loyal subjects all agree

This pearl is priceless no flaw to see

Great Britain is great and I love thee.
