(unaccustomed as I am …)
Hustle, bustle, rush and crush,
busy people pushing past
want to reach their ‘somewhere’ fast;
hoping they will soon have quitted
all this whirl, and noise emitted:
evening haven – peace at last,
Mass of traffic: stop and go,
intermittant bulky flow,
people wending in and out
(– what’s the hurry all about?).
Giant steel and glassy cages
towering over (from past ages)
odd-shaped ‘squares’ where churches squeeze,
muted noise and welcome trees.
