Narrative Poems: VIII. England
England
William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
 
From “King John,” Act V. Sc. 7.

THIS England never did, nor never shall,
Lie at the proud foot of a conqueror,
*        *        *        *        *
Come the three corners of the world in arms,
And we shall shock them. Nought shall make us rue,
If England to itself do rest but true.        5
