Photos & Poetry | London Edition | Blogmas Day 6

Wednesday, December 06, 2017

I've been wanting to do another poetry post for the longest time! I quite liked how this one on Bayreuth had turned out so I thought it would be a great idea to pick a poem on London that I love and share with you the  photos I took on my recent visit. These have not been taken on the bestest of cameras, neither are they incredibly artistically shot but nevertheless they capture my love of London pretty well. The poem is called 'Composed Upon Westminster Bridge' by William Wordsworth.

Earth has not anything to show more fair:
Dull would he be of soul who could pass by

A sight so touching in its majesty:
This City now doth, like a garment, wear
The beauty of the morning: silent, bare,

Ships, towers, domes, theatres, and temples lie
Open unto the fields, and to the sky;
All bright and glittering in the smokeless air.

Never did sun more beautifully steep
In his first splendour, valley, rock, or hill;
Ne’er saw I, never felt, a calm so deep!

The river glideth at his own sweet will:
Dear God! the very houses seem asleep;
And all that mighty heart is lying still!

Lots of Love,
Jess xx
