In a little thatched cottage . . . by Catherine Drew

In a little thatched cottage, as free as a King,
Near a green shady grove, where the birds used to sing
I was born and was bred, in the Forest of Dean,
I knew nothing of town or what it did mean.

Catherine Drew was born on 30 May 1784, and died on 21 March 1867 in Cinderford.
Her grave is at St. John’s church Cinderford.
