W A L E S - 
THE LAND OF THE RED DRAGON

By Josie Whitehead

Land of the Red Dragon (The)

Welsh mountains: rocky, rough and tough
     And those with softer peaks.
Welsh coastal beaches: soft, clean sand;
     Small coves and hidden creeks.

Puffins, dolphins, seals and gulls
     Abound the Welsh coastline,
But, deep within the Welsh forests,
     Find bluebells ‘neath the pine.

Welsh woodlands come alive at dawn 
     With warbler, blackbird, wren,
And you may see some fallow deer
     Who hide from eyes of men.

Come to the rural countryside
      And in the fields you’ll see
Welsh sheep whose thick wool fleeces
     Make warm clothes for you and me.

There’s more to Wales than country life:
     Five cities - did you know?
And within these cities, tall and proud,
     The heart of business grows.
