So here is another poem from my time in London and no its not about the queen. There is a great area on the Southbank that’s called Queen’s Walk and that’s where I wrote this poem so that is the reason for the title. It’s a really intriguing part of the city and I was there for my internship. I wrote this poem just for fun but since I’m also using it for my romantic poetry class I figured it could fall into my These College Days posts ;D
Take a read and let me know what you think. Also I have updated my pages i.e my about me page, support page etc and would love for you to take a look. Anywho I’m coming to the end of my time here in London and its been wonderful! Look out for another blog post soon giving my wrap up of my experience in London and what I will and won’t miss about this vibrant city. Enjoy the poem. (As always this is my original work so no stealing :D)
They long for the sea but an ebbing Thames will have to do
A little sun peeks out from the clouds but a chill remains
Famous landmarks across the river seem to wink hello
Cranes rise from the ground like steadfast soldiers surrounding the dome of St.Pauls as if to say the new must surround the old
Workers in neon coats mingle and children giggle
Men in stuffy suits gaze across the river to find a moment of peace in the madness
Oh what a fortunate soul am I to sit on these tattered south bank benches and watch the world of London go by
I hope you enjoyed that little snippet of London life and I also wanted to say thank you so much for the support on my Marrakech piece. I had more likes on that post then I’ve ever had before. So thank you very much.
Have a great night and a good week. I’ll be going to Camden Town tomorrow and going to get dental surgery so exciting times for me ;p
Until next time,
Be Blessed, Stay Strong and Never Give Up
