BALLAD OF THE LONDONER, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Evening falls on the smoky walls
Last Line: Where flowers are pale and few.
Subject(s): London; Love


Evening falls on the smoky walls,
And the railings drip with rain,
And I will cross the old river
To see my girl again.

The great and solemn-gliding tram,
Love's still-mysterious car,
Has many a light of gold and white,
And a single dark red star.

I know a garden in a street
Which no one ever knew;
I know a rose beyond the Thames,
Where flowers are pale and few.
