Horatio Nelson, a true hero
 
He won the battle of Trafalgar
 
He died in the Victory
 
The crew placed his body in a cask of brandy mixed with camphor and myrrh,
 lashed to the Victory’s mainmast and placed under guard.
 
He was carved in stone and placed on a 151 foot column in Trafalgar Square
 
Nelson was a valiant hero to the English nation
 
He was missed as a person as well as a hero
 
It’s odd for me as I pass his column I look up to him and I am proud
 
I look up to him as a hero
 
He was missed by everyone particularly my dad’s family
 
I look up to him also as a family member because
 
He happens to be my great, great, great Grandfather
 
He was so great that he had a ship The Lord Nelson  named after him
 
A ship I sailed on many years later
 
A story to tell the grandchildren.
