This earth of majesty, this seat of Mars,
This other Eden, demi-paradise,

Against infection and the hand of war,

This precious stone set in the silver sea,
Which serves it in the office of a wall
Or as a moat defensive to a house,
Against the envy of less happier lands,–
This blessed plot, this earth, this realm, this England.
