Description: - This great grey city that bred me and mine—Supreme, mysterious, dirty and divine—Is made up all of contrast, light and gloom.It has green hills and parks where flowers bloom;And shadowed pathways where young lips are shyAnd warm hands tangle while the night slips by;Deserts of humble brick, resigned and drear;And crowded taverns, full of noise and beer;Thronged streets where jostle theatre and hotel,And stately terraces where rich folk dwell....It has black alleys, and most dismal plainsCrossed by long, steady, fire-emitting trains;Foul slums and palaces, prisons and spiresAnd suburbs where the jaundiced clerk expires.
