Cambridge U.K. In Term-Time - Poem by Jonathan Goldman a.k.a JGthepoet

When students fill our City fair,
About their studies going,
The Term has started but beware
Of cycles in streets a-flowing.

For Cambridge students from around the world
Know nothing of our Cycle laws,
But hurry onwards, ever onwards,
With minds set on their common cause,
To study hard and enjoy themselves
Whilst they are studying amongst ourselves.

The River Cam flows through the ancient City,
Past the Mathematical Bridge where punts go,
To the water above Jesus's lock
Where ducks and swans do flock,
Below which lock, the narrow-boats do lay,
On licences granted by the day.

But at the end of Term,
The Residents again return
To a City restful, at peace and sane
Until the next Term starts again.
