Beginning with something typically British--talking about the weather. Talking about April and St. George being born on April 23rd, as was Shakespeare. Imagining being in Warwickshire in April. A detailed description of some St. George Day celebrations. A look at England and the English people. A lighthearted review, with many anecdotes, quotations, and recitation of poetry, with some interspersed serious remarks about England's contributions. The hope of the world today enshrined in the divine patience which is England and that equally divine impatience which is the United States of America. Being thankful for that unquenched hope.
