A SONG OF LONDON, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: The sun's on the pavement
Last Line: They're all the world to me.
Alternate Author Name(s): Tomson, Graham R.
Subject(s): London


THE sun's on the pavement,
The current comes and goes,
And the grey streets of London
They blossom like the rose.

Crowned with the spring sun,
Vistas fair and free;
What joy that waits not?
What that may not be?

The blue-bells may beckon,
The cuckoo call—and yet—
The grey streets of London
I never may forget.

O fair shines the gold moon
On blossom-clustered eaves,
But bright blinks the gas-lamp
Between the linden leaves.

And the green country meadows
Are fresh and fine to see,
But the grey streets of London
They're all the world to me.
