Rebecca Hawkins, Vice-President of the Frances Bardsley International Club has written a special poem to honour Her Royal Highness Queen Elizabeth II who is Head of the Commonwealth of Nations. Her Majesty will become the longest reigning monarch in British history on 9th September 2015. Rebecca’s poem is a first for Romford. Her poetry has also been used for the Havering Autism Sunday Service held at St. Alban’s Church in Romford and the first ever Commonwealth Service in the London Borough of Havering.

Queen Elizabeth - The Queen of Hearts

It’s an empty word, gilded in gold,

Meaning lost in an ancient mist,

Stitched into history’s fabric.

She breathes life to the word,

It’s her soul; she is the robe she wears,

But underneath, a woman

Devoted, diligent,

Bound to her country, as her country is to her.

Family around her, destiny in her blood,

Caring for her fields, tending to her flock,

Always working, always watching and always listening.

She holds peace’s foundations in her hands,

Carries unity and commonwealth in her heart.

She needs not the valour to wage bloodshed,

Unlike times long ago,

She fights the battles no one sees,

The handshakes and the smiles

That defeat the tight-lipped suits,

And ever constant threat.

And though she may wither,

She will not grow old,

She will join those in history’s mist,

And live life eternal.
