Derwent Water

English Lake District

This royal throne of kings, this sceptred isle,
This earth of majesty, this seat of Mars,
This other Eden, demi-paradise,
This fortress built by Nature for herself
Against infection and the hand of war,
This happy breed of men, this little world,
This precious stone set in the silver sea.....
This blessed plot, this earth, this realm, this England....

William Shakespeare: Richard II, II: 1
