One Night on the South Bank

A thousand jewels in soft array
brush moonlit waters in sweet ballet
vibrant lights from red to gold
enchant the river of London old

Through the night, St Paul's commands
a ship of white, atop the lands
casting awe from bridge to hall
splashing life in silver thrall

Blackfriars Bridge in calm repose
Oxo Tower glows like a rose
twisting lamps climb from the stands
Thames Clippers sail in silky bands

By the wall, a busker plays
pennies drop with smiles of praise
melodies lilt through softest air
and our fingers lace with timid care

We stop beneath the gem-lit trees
with thumping hearts and weakened knees
lips lightly touch in loving test
then in relief, our foreheads rest
