Henry Fothergill Chorley
Then here’s to the oak, the brave old oak,
Who stands in his pride alone!
And still flourish he, a hale green tree,
When a hundred years are gone!
Chorley quotes
A song to the oak, the brave old oak,
Who hath ruled in the greenwood long!
Now gold hath sway; we all obey
And a ruthless king is he;
But he never shall send our ancient friend
To be tost on the stormy sea.
