Multum in Parvo

Rutland Water for cycling

Gentle breeze and peace

 

Happy villages

Our beautiful scenery

Great, lovely, peaceful meadow

 

Splashing and Sailing

Lots of fun on the water

Nice, joyful, picnics

 

Happy, buzzing bees

Ospreys at Rutland Water

Flying and diving

 

Rutland is the best

Everything is wonderful

Multum in Parvo

Rutland is small

Yet so big inside

You can visit the park and go down the slide!

The water is calm

On a warm summers day

Perfect for fishing in every way!

 

Oakham's the centre

 

Where most of us shop

 

Food and supplies within a short hop

 

There's a museum

 

With things old and new

 

I've been to visit and so should you!!

 

Rutland oh Rutland

 

Such a beautiful place

 

It all puts a smile on everyone's face!!!

In Rutland you can set your mind free like if you're an artist you can

paint many still life photos and maybe some flowers

 

In Rutland you will find many schools of your enjoyment, some

private some not, some primary, some secondary

 

Rutland has many places to visit like Oakham, Egleton, Uppingham

and that is only a few

 

Rutland may be the smallest county in England

but it is the biggest to me

 

Rutland is special to many people,

Rutland is special to me.

 

As I walk across Rutland Water I see,

Rutland's true meaning and beauty

When I wake up in the morning

I hear the birds cheeping

 

When I go to school,

I hear the lambs bleating

 

When I am in the car

I see horses galloping

 

When I go to bed

I hear the owls hooting

 

When I wake up in the morning

It all starts again

Water, fields, birds and castle's,

That's what lies in Rutland's heart,

Skipping in the bright yellow sun,

Multum in Parvo.

 

Watch the boatman as they fish,

With the sun coming through the clouds,

Multum in Parvo.

 

Oh Rutland oh Rutland

 

You may be small, but not so weak,

Full of loveliness,

Your wonderful fields,

Lakes and churches sparkle all day long

Multum in Parvo

Brooke Priory

 

I can see,

                The sky blue transparent reservoir

                                Named as Rutland Water

 

I can see,

                The historic museum,

                                Full of ancient history

 

I can see,

                Oakham castle

                                Full of Royal horseshoes

 

I can see,

                The beautiful ladies

                                Riding horses at the hunt

Leighfield Priory

 

As I walk through the countryside

I see hills and valleys everywhere I look

 

As I jog on my county

My heart beats like a drum

While I run past scarlet poppies

 

Driving past ponies what a beautiful picture

Gardens open for charity, flourishing with colour

And perfumed flowers colouring like a rainbow

 

As I cycle around Rutland Water

I spy people sailing and the grass dancing

To the rhythm of the wind

 

As Ospreys soar through the skies

Over popcorn shaped clouds

Smudged with grey, white and blue

 

They see me talking with my friends

Walking through colourful fields

Which are like pieces of a jigsaw puzzle

Forming Rutland

Horseshoes glisten, gleaming bright,

Under the Castle powerful light,

Keeping the Knights army safe,

Under such a powerful place,

Many a night would see the court,

Powerfully strong like a fort,

Many tales be told of Kings and Queens of old,

Making their mark of a horseshoe,

Becomes a historical breakthrough,

Made by a local blacksmith,

That a horse could not run with.
