Spencer the Rover

In Yorkshire near Rotherham, he had been on his rambles
Being weary of traveling, he sat down to rest
At the foot of yonder mountain there runs a clear fountain
With bread and cold water he himself did refresh
It tasted more sweeter than the gold he had wasted
More sweeter than honey and gave more content


it's One World.

it's a labour of Love .

Swan was the totemic animal of ancient Ligurians.
