THIS is an ancient England in the new;
Hear how those thousand children leap and sing.
Their dreams, their wonder and their pleasure ring
Through England; young expectancy comes true,
While Mayor and Alderman and Usher bright
With robes and jewels out of a fairy story,
And brighter hearts, wish them their heart's delight,
And music shows them sudden streets of glory.

Here walks the shade of Whittington in bliss;
O greatness and good-nature, still you thrive.
I thank my God, Charles Lamb is still alive
In these new Londoners; they shall not miss
The crown of life; here's Coram, Dickens, Hood,
Christmas and Christ profoundly understood.
