Thames! Beautiful Thames! - Poem by Dr.V.K. Kanniappan

Thames! Beautiful Thames!
Thames River arises at Gloucestershire,
flows thro' London, the capital of U.K;

Thames River is tidal in London
With a rise and fall of 7 meters,
The river is fed by more than 20 tributaries;

The Thames River which flows alongside
several other towns and cities -
Oxford, Reading, Henley-on-Thames,
Windsor, Kingston upon Thames and Richmond -
is beautiful;

Thames River has a total length of 215 mile,
River banks on either side are beautiful,
Pavement strolling stretch on either side
is beautiful;

Boats sailing in Thames river are beautiful,
Young women who sail in the boats are beautiful,
White swan pairs' which swim in the river are beautiful;

Watching swans from the bridge,
- which spans Reading and Caversham -
somersaulting to catch the fish
is still more exciting and beautiful!
Thames! Beautiful Thames!

    I have never seen Thames river that flows through London, the capital of U.K; several other towns and cities
    Oxford, Reading, Henley-on-Thames,
    Windsor, Kingston upon Thames and Richmond. As per your depiction it has beautiful sights on its both banks. It may be quoted here some....
    River banks on either side are beautiful,
    Pavement strolling stretch on either side
    is beautiful;

    Boats sailing in Thames river are beautiful,
    Young women who sail in the boats are beautiful,
    White swan pairs' which swim in the river are beautiful;

    Watching swans from the bridge,
    - which spans Reading and Caversham -
    somersaulting to catch the fish
    is still more exciting and beautiful!
    Thames! Beautiful Thames! !

    Nice presentation. Thanks for sharing.

    I used to live near Windsor and my late wife and I used to walk along the Thames there. A lovely poem. (Report) Reply

    Dera David Wood,
    I came to West Hounslow last year to visit my son's family and we visited Windsor Great Park also. I missed to see you.
