A Nations Flame

This next poem is one of my favourites. Not only does it come from the heart but it shows my love and passion for the country I love and have been brought up in.

A Nation's Flame

There stands the thistle
Out in the drizzle
Standing proud and tall
Tormented by the weather
Standing by the heather

For all to see
To hold our gaze
Ye are a nations flame
And in our hearts
Ye shall remain

Ye stood the test of time
Never out of line
Forever to shine
Our nation's divine
Growing in dexterity
Unrepented for eternity

Standing tall of pride not shame
To bare a nation's heart it's flame
So when we seek our light again
We look to ye
Our Nation's Flame
