On the Coming Marriage of Her Royal Highness the Princess Elizabeth
written by John Masefield
Link to further information




What is the Crown but something set above
The jangle and the jargon and the hate
Of strivers after power in the State,
A symbol, like a banner, for men's love?

When hope is dim and luck is out of joint,
When enemies within, without, assail,
Where a Crown shines, the courage cannot fail,
There a land's spirit finds a rallying-point.
