Hidden Hearts Series
Queen of Hearts

Oil on canvas (approx. 5ft x 4ft)


Immersed in the flag of dedication
She vows allegiance to the nation
The diamond crown is lifted high
Responsibilities of history lie

At twenty-seven, a tender age
Stepping up to centre stage
Sixty years a momentous task
A secret place to release the mask

A reflection of how she is inside
Still twenty-seven, a Coronation bride
Handbag on armour, Racing Post on chair
Norman Hartnell frock, what to wear?

Coronet hung on the rocking-horse ear
Fob watch reminiscing on each passing year
Lucky horse shoe on gold watch chain
The Derby winner is yet to train

Even Her Majesty needs a bit of luck!
