Shouting streets and crowded corners
Blaring sirens and car alarms
Hundreds of wings flapping about.
Black cabs and red buses
Dotted around grey roads.
Proud lions baking in the sun
Can only stare at the fountain.
Red and blue and postcards in shops
Mugs and souvenirs of the city.
Walk away and follow the water
On man-made stepping stone of the river.
Admire the eye of our town
As it glistens in the sun and
Captivates tourists.
No souvenir better
Than what they have seen
And experienced.
Camera of their hearts
Marveling at this beautiful
Scenery.
The sun dies
And the city awakes.
A thousand lights
In every direction.
The moon smiles.
London shines.
