W A L E S -
THE LAND OF THE RED DRAGON
By Josie Whitehead
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.
