With elegance, and unsurpassed grace,
Our beautiful Queen lit up every space,
In loyal duty, until the end,
Events and ceremonies, she’d attend.
A wondrous Queen, full of fun and wit,
She even did a Paddington skit.
Parachuting, with James Bond,
Our Queen, of whom, we’d become so fond.
In the longest reign, virtuous and kind,
Our monarch, was thus defined.
Her rule may be over, but our memories nest,
In peace, with Philip, now may she rest.
Her Majesty, The Queen, Elizabeth II, 1926 – 2022.
