Beautiful City - Poem by Alfred Lord Tennyson

Beautiful city

Beautiful city, the centre and crater of European confusion,
O you with your passionate shriek for the rights of an equal
humanity,
How often your Re-volution has proven but E-volution
Roll’d again back on itself in the tides of a civic insanity!

    I wonder if he is talking about Paris France. Does anyone have another guess? (or perhaps you know) (Report) Reply
