Forgotten Rivers. When Time was on our Side

The River Tyburn


Meanders thru the Great Smoke

Licking Royalty. Parliamentaries, Subjects alike

Never-ending journey

Myriad secrets

If only these banks could talk

Pure, putrid

Giver and taker of Life

Now hidden from sight

Yet with a purpose

Softly flowing

Listen closely, you can still hear

Taking you back

To when Time was on our Side


Poem by Dorothy and Rhea Thierstein
