    I learned this poem at Wix's Lane School in London in 1948. The headmaster Mr Alvey insisted we learn it. I always wondered who wrote it. Gerald Gould, who is a little known poet. I still see the White Road and the Blue Hills in my mind back to those post WW2 years with the silver haired school master reading it. Still a link to another world gone yet still alive in such poetry.

Fallen Cities

I gathered with a careless hand,
There where the waters night and day
Are languid in the idle bay,
A little heap of golden sand;
And, as I saw it, in my sight
Awoke a vision brief and bright,
A city in a pleasant land.
