FLEET STREET, by                     Poet's Biography
First Line: I never see the newsboys run
Last Line: About their brave unwearied feet.
Subject(s): London; Newspapers; Journalism; Journalists


I never see the newsboys run
Amid the whirling street,
With swift untiring feet,
To cry the latest venture done,
But I expect one day to hear
Them cry the crack of doom
And risings from the tomb,
With great Archangel Michael near;
And see them running from the Fleet
As messengers of God,
With Heaven's tidings shod
About their brave unwearied feet.
