leeneia Origins: Oh, What a Merry Land Is England (5) RE: Origins: Oh, What a Merry Land Is England 12 Jul 21


Whenever I hear the phrase 'Merry England', I think of this passage from 'Wind in the Willows.'

"The gaoler nodded grimly, laying his withered hand on the shoulder of the miserable Toad. The rusty key creaked in the lock, the great door clanged behind them; and Toad was a helpless prisoner in the remotest dungeon of the best-guarded keep of the stoutest castle in all the length and breadth of Merry England."
