Ursula O’Reilly Traynor‘s insight:

I love walking into a tube carriage, finding a seat,slumping down, preparing to stare into the near distance and then bang! A wondrous poem floats before my eyes. Thank you Poems on the Underground. You are much appreciated for enlivening our subterranean journeys.
