A (Colne) Spring Symphony

By Mr.G.H Jones of The Acorn, St. Albans

So I tell to you the story as I had it told to me.

And it nestled in a hollow near a Brewery-Watford Way,
And when the brewers saw it, sure it looked so pure and fine,

The scent of summers breezes and the peace of soft moonlight,
The strength of mighty nature and the kiss of fairy wing,
And when they had it bottled, then they christened it “Colne Spring
