I THOUGHT readers might like to see this copy of a poem which I have sent to the Queen on the occasion of her Diamond Jubilee.
You made a promise when you were young
To serve your country, well truly a job well done.
During your reign with pride, Philip your husband by your side.
Together, what a team
We truly thank you for your service as our Queen.
Your whole life dedicated to us
Every single day without fuss.
Sixty years on the throne
Your life not your own.
You are admired throughout the commonwealth.
God has blessed you with good health.
Along with you, look forward to the diamond celebrations.
Long may you reign Ma’am over our nation.
Happy and glorious the years have been
A thousand thank yous for being our Queen
