This poem was sent to Her Majesty The Queen in celebration of her Diamond Jubilee. An appreciative letter was received back from Her Lady-in-Waiting, making it clear that Her Majesty had been touched by the sentiments expressed. The poem was also read out to Flushing Residents on the occasion of their celebrations, warmly received, and remained on show for a month in the local shop window in warm celebration.
History will surely indicate, and most people know now, that Queen Elizabeth is one of the most important figures in the United Kingdom, a true model of public service above self. Her Christmas messages and deep faith are a true beacon and inspiration to many.
We wish her a very happy 90th year.
