A very special London PSF for EMS

How I long to be drinking near there.

Unfortunately it's all about Lord's cricket ground.

It is little I repair to the matches of the Southron folk,
Though my own red roses there may blow;
It is little I repair to the matches of the Southron folk,
Though the red roses crest the caps, I know.
For the field is full of shades as I near the shadowy coast,
And a ghostly batsman plays to the bowling of a ghost,
And I look through my tears on a soundless-clapping host
As the run-stealers flicker to and fro,
To and fro: -
O my Hornby and my Barlow long ago!

It's long been my wish to have a beer in a pub near Lord's when a Test match is on.

Perhaps, one day.

Perhaps a beer in a pub near a tv in Brunswick while a test match is on at Lord's.

Might be easier.

Mmm, Brunswick or London.

Tough call.

I hate this poem!

Do you know how hard it is to get quality poems about Lord's Cricket Ground, Squib?

For me? You shouldn't have!

I think I may actually have had a beer in a pub near Lord's, but not when a Test match has been on.
