Mulberry madness

by Vic Keegan
Mulberry Mound St James’s Park

What3Words.com locates any space of 3m square using only three words. As lockdown therapy I hesitantly tried a poem which contains a 3 word location (in the right order!) so you can locate the place it was inspired by (a mulberry tree in St James’s Park) and even be guided there.

Years ago when the first James reigns
He plants lots of mulberries in royal LANES
From which he dearly hopes to wrench
Silk supremacy FROM the conquering French
But the berries he grew were black not white
The silkworms spurned them, a pitiful sight
And the king of England was publicly fooled
A figure of fun over those he RULED.
