Poetry by Jeff Green


My London

Two thousand years of history
The loves and fears of time
The mighty tower beside the Thames
Where all the power has slept
The ghosts of Rome and Saxon times
In England’s home and cradle
The worst that man could ever do
The finest that can be
A city teems with million souls
And also dreams for all their hearts
In all the world no finer place
Could keep me furled in dreams and verse
Beside the River old and wide
The potent giver over years
My London lies beside the Thames
And my heart cries its name

Author notes

Not sure what this is, But “no end-line rhyme” was too tempting…
