Poetry and London
• Athwart the sky a lowly sigh
From west to east the sweet wind carried;
The sun stood still on Primrose Hill;
His light in all the city tarried;
The clouds on viewless columns bloomed
Like smoldering lilies unconsumed.
“Oh sweetheart, see! How shadowy,
Of some occult magician’s rearing,
Or swung in space of heaven’s grace
Dissolving, dimly reappearing,
Afloat upon ethereal tides
St. Paul’s above the city rides!”
A rumor broke through the thin smoke,
Enwreathing abbey, tower, and palace,
The parks, the squares, the thoroughfares,
The million-peopled lanes and alleys,
An ever-muttering prisoned storm,
The heart of London beating warm.
• John Davidson
• Do you remember the London fog?
Hovering in the sky over the bridge,
And the sweet smell of the Thames?
Pierced my heart with a knife.
Do you remember the Tower Bridge?
Gentle breeze caressing your skin
And this coolness,
London, I'm not leaving.
• Diana Palamarchuck
• I go to London dream
And spend the rest of his days.
And like a mantra every day repeating that
leave there, I think it will be true. I want to
let air into the lungs of London,
To each cell filled with them.
And the soul is soft.
And all of us that dream materialize.
