Excerpts From The Old Vicarage, Grantchester By Rupert Brooke

WRB_14256443904[1]

God! I will pack, and take a train

And get me to England once again!

Strong men have run for miles and miles

When one from Cherry Hinton smiles

Stands the Church clock at ten to three

And is there honey still for tea?
