HS2 Link


The HS2 is a train so fast
Camden people won't see it pass
They may be out or earning their keep
Or lost the home in which they sleep

To travel so fast, northward bound
Is not as idyllic as it may sound
Those on the train, should sit and wonder
Of communities that have been torn asunder

Remember while you sit and text
It could be your neighbourhood next

Poem of the Day

poet Charles Stuart Calverley

He stood, a worn-out City clerk —
Who'd toil'd, and seen no holiday,
For forty years from dawn to dark —
Alone beside Caermarthen Bay.
