10 - Jubilee Celebrations

Celebrating Queen Elizabeth's Jubilee at Chatsworth

By Richard Proctor

In the United Kingdom
In 2022
We'll celebrate the Jubilee,
The mice ๐Ÿญ will join in too!

Poppy's really up for it - 
She's never seen the Queen. 
All her friends will join her too
(But Cromwell's not so keen).

Let's all go to Chatsworth,
And if the weather's fine
We'll have a great big party
With lots of cheese and wine.

Lewis was excited
And was trailing at the back
Because he'd been distracted
By an unexpected "quack!"

We'll party in the daytime,
And if we're feeling fit
We'll go into the park tonight
And see the beacon lit.

Seventy years she's been the Queen,
The Queen of all the nations.
Said Poppy: "That's a long, long time - 
Several generations!"  

Weโ€™ll wave our flags, join in the fun 
And all the hurly burly.
Then we'll go home to bed and try
Not to get up too early.
