    Descriptive Jottings of London

    As I stood upon London Bridge and viewed the mighty throng
    Of thousands of people in cabs and 'busses rapidly whirling along,
    All furiously driving to and fro,
    Up one street and down another as quick as they could go:

    Then I was struck with the discordant sound of human voices there,
    Which seemed to me like wild geese cackling in the air:
    And the river Thames is a most beautiful sight,
    To see the steamers sailing upon it by day and by night.

    And the Tower of London is most gloomy to behold,
    And the crown of Englandlies there, begemmed with precious stones and gold;
    King Henry the Sixth was murdered there by the Duke of Glo'ster,
    And when he killed him with his sword he called him an impostor.

    St. Paul's Cathedral is the finest building that ever I did see;
    There's nothing can surpass it in the city of Dundee,
    Because it's most magnificent to behold
    With its beautiful dome and spire glittering like gold.

    And as for Nelson's Monument that stands in Trafalgar Square,
    It is a most stately monument I most solemnly declare,
    And towering defiantly very high,
    Which arrests strangers' attention while passing by.

    Then there's two beautiful water-fountains spouting up very high,
    Where the weary travellers can drink when he feels dry;
    And at the foot of the monument there's three bronze lions in grand array,
    Enough to make the stranger's heart throb with dismay.

    Then there's Mr Spurgeon, a great preacher, which no one dare gainsay
    I went to hear him preach on the Sabbath-day.
    And he made my heart feel light and gay
    When I heard him preach and pray.

    And the Tabernacle was crowded from ceiling to floor,
    And many were standing outside the door;
    He is an eloquent preacher, I solemnly declare,
    And I was struck with admiration as I on him did stare.

    Then there's Petticoat Lane I venture to say,
    It's a wonderful place on the Sabbath day;
    There wearing apparel can be bought to suit the young or old
    For the ready cash-- silver, coppers, or gold.

    Oh! mighty city of London! you are wonderful to see,
    And thy beauties no doubt fill the tourist's heart with glee;
    But during my short stay, and while wandering there,
    Mr Spurgeon was the only man I heard speaking proper English I do declare. read more »

    The Lights of London

    The evenfall, so slow on hills, hath shot
    Far down into the valley's cold extreme,
    Untimely midnight; spire and roof and stream
    Like fleeing spectres, shudder and are not. read more »

    Calamity in London

    'Twas in the year of 1897, and on the night of Christmas day,
    That ten persons' lives were taken sway,
    By a destructive fire in London, at No. 9 Dixie Street,
    Alas! so great was the fire, the victims couldn't retreat. read more »

    A London Plane-Tree

    Green is the plane-tree in the square,
    The other trees are brown;
    They droop and pine for country air;
    The plane-tree loves the town. read more »

    A March Day in London

    Composed Upon Westminster Bridge, September 3, 1802

    Earth has not anything to show more fair:
    Dull would he be of soul who could pass by
    A sight so touching in its majesty:
    This City now doth, like a garment, wear read more »

    West London

    Crouch'd on the pavement close by Belgrave Square
    A tramp I saw, ill, moody, and tongue-tied;
    A babe was in her arms, and at her side
    A girl; their clothes were rags, their feet were bare. read more »
