 From my mind

My Land

This here is my land
For there is no other like this land
It's the place of my birth, my homeland
Where my heart belongs , my true land.

From the Cheviot hills, way down the moors to the sea
With rolling hills, forests and rivers with the greenest beauty
It belongs, it is every Northumbrians God given right
It makes me proud when my eyes drink in her beautiful sights

A land that goes back centuries, steeped in history
With her castles that faced many battles from land and sea.
Romans and Vikings to her shores made there way
Conquered, settled, loved the land and wanted to stay.

With her wild grassed dunes and golden beaches that stretch mile after mile
Walking hand in hand by the waters edge, getting your feet wet making you smile.
To walk out and breathe fresh salty sea air, hearing the roar of the tide on still summer nights
The best of both worlds, countryside on three sides and to the East the seas delights.

This here is my land
I will not stray far from this land
I'm a part of it and it's a part of me, my homeland
The place I live, breathe and love Northumberland.
