London’s Lights

London’s Lights


I’m running wild

thru the streets of London

Empty, dark, cold streets

The lights are off

The cars are gone

The people have disappeared


I’m on my own

I’m chilled to the bone

The spirits are singing

Their ancient song

Beckoning me to meet them


Where do I go?

I do not know

I can hear the music

Beating rhythmically

Under my feet

Each step brings me closer


And round the corner

The world holds its breath

Then with one voice





The sky lights up

In a rainbow of colour

A roar from the crowd

A cheer

An applause



A plastic cup of mulled wine

To my lips

And warmth in my heart
