In Regent’s Park, moored beside the decorative arch of Primrose
Hill Bridge, traditionally painted canal boats patiently wait,
under the velvet canopy pf a leaden ebony twilight sky, the 
Cities’ innumerable glittering lights captivate.

A stately park avenue of mature chestnut trees with gently 
twisting silver trunks, shadowed by pastel sun’s rays,
a heat haze’s fluxing iridescent shimmer lightly rests above 
London’s towering skyline on a hot summer’s day.

The tranquil silence of mature oak trees in Saint James Park 
causes the dull roar of tireless traffic to recede,
the meticulous colourful military tradition of Changing The
Guard mounted on immaculate black equine steeds.

An arcing spray of prismatic crystal droplets of sparkling water 
 from a local blackbird taking an early morning bath,
the blush pink tissue paper confetti of flowering cherry blossom
petals embellishes nearby wide winding paths.

Shadowed transitory water highlighted with glittering sunlit 
 diamonds glides under Tower Bridge’s turquoise blue,
 radiant springtime yellow daffodils flower on the adjacent river 
  bank creating a classic picture postcard view.

The itinerant white clouds of a winter’s breaking dawn are 
reflected in the Shard, silvered glass so high,
above this vibrant metropolis, a fluid cloud mummuration of 
roosting starlings ebb and flow in twilight sky.

In Regent’s Park, moored beside Primrose Hill Bridge, 
traditionally painted canal boats patiently wait,
under the dense canopy of a leaden obsidian velvet twilight
sky, the city’s innumerable shimmering lights captivate.

Royal Parks luxuriously carpeted with a transient rich dusting 
of discarded autumnal colour in amber, russet and gold,
a resident grey squirrel industriously digging, hiding it’s winter 
hoard of acorns on a morning, clear, icy and cold.

London’s distinctive architectural silhouette is backlit with linear
ephemeral white gold on a freezing winter’s sunrise,
the distinct ebony line on the distant horizon hazy, softened
where resting smoke white morning mist lies.

A colourful profusion of tri-coloured summer pansies in  yellow, 
lilac and rich ruby decorate a park’s curved flowerbed,
in Covent Garden, a row of Art Deco telephone boxes used 
to patiently stand sentry, painted in Pillar Box Red.

The bustling vibrance and noise of the day then restful 
   silence of the night, this city you loved so dear,
when I think of or see London, so full of natural and manmade beauty,
this brings you ever closer, brings you ever near.
