The Cockney Amorist



Oh when my love, my darling,
You've left me here alone,
I'll walk the streets of London
Which once seemed all our own.


The vast suburban churches
Together we have found
The ones which smelt of gaslight
The ones in incense drown'd

John Betjamen

I also posted it as it was Bob Hoskins' birthday yesterday (I have a soft spot for him and was gutted over his passing a few years ago).

I love the photo: it reminds me of the paintings of Atkinson Grimshaw…
