Alfred Lord Tennyson

(6 August 1809 – 6 October 1892 / Lincoln / England)

Beautiful City


Beautiful city

Beautiful city, the centre and crater of European confusion,
O you with your passionate shriek for the rights of an equal
humanity,
How often your Re-volution has proven but E-volution
Roll’d again back on itself in the tides of a civic insanity!
