a quirky look at London Life

W B Yeats on London

See on Scoop.itLondon Life

I sat, a solitary man,
In a crowded London shop,
An open book and empty cup
On the marble table-top.
While on the shop and street I gazed
My body of a sudden blazed;
And twenty minutes more or less
It seemed, so great my happiness,
That I was blessed and could bless.

― W.B. Yeats

Ursula O’Reilly Traynor‘s insight:

Seems about right for approaching Autumn!
