Writing to me is a therapeutic way to work through my current struggles and seems quite necessary for me right now.
Oh I took a walk
Down a London street
I could hardly believe all the faces
I could never meet
I was just a visitor
Of the city
It seems so strange
When I think of the people I met there
Knowing it's a chance in a million
That our paths would be regained
Friendly faces and places
Met me while I was there
But I was just visiting
Just a visitor of the city
(And the city - it was pretty)

Visiting the city sounds nice.
I traveled once to Spain and was once a visitor. I loved the architecture.

Well depicted. Crisp, concise and very precise.

I apologize for not getting back and replying sooner. I wrote this poem in about 1981 after visiting London with my drama class from highschool. I did just move to England over 3 weeks ago.
My life is in a lot of flux at the moment. I am staying at my boyfriend's house in Surrey (he sleeps at his pastor's house at night) and we hope to marry this year or early next year. It took me 3 planes to get here from Hawaii. Thank God for no covid after a 14 day quarantine. Tomorrow we go to church complete with face masks, hand sanitizer and social distancing. Then leave immediately after it is over. Well, it's a start.

Did you actually get to visit London? I would love to visit there. I bet it is pretty. With social distancing at a must, I will probably just read about it.
John Hansen from Queensland Australia on July 20, 2020:
This poem was a pleasant read, especially what the cities of the world are experiencing at the moment: social distancing, faces covered in masks, travel restrictions etc.
