London Quote No 5


“The way was long and weary,
But gallantly they strode,
A country lad and lassie,
Along the heavy road!

The night was dark and stormy,
But blithe of heart were they,
For shining in the distance,
The lights of London lay!

O gleaming lights of London,
That gem of the city’s crown,
What fortunes be within you,
O Lights of London Town!”

— George Robert Sims, Lights of London
