Today's post is dedicated to my two amazing tour guides:
|Looking lovingly at each other over Mary Wollstonecraft Godwin's grave - the exact place where Mary Shelley (author of Frankenstein and Godwin's daughter) was wooed by Percy Shelley.|
While in London I did a lot of reading...ON THE STREETS!
The Brits are good about giving you kindly directions where ever you are:
On the walking paths:
Getting on or off the tube:
At the edge of every street crossing:
|Opposite of what we are used to...|
|Particularly helpful ALL the time.|
And their other signage is so civilized and polite as well:
|Instead of EXIT|
|Instead of YIELD|
|"Be More You"|
Today's poem is a 'sign' of my appreciation to London:
along the streets
words are found
"stay to the left"
"mind the gap"
both are hard
when reading a map
word on the street is
London's the best
lots of directions
for every guest
