from The Prelude
The river proudly bridged, the giddy top
And the Whispering Gallery of St Paul's, the tombs
Of Westminister, the Giants of Guildhall,
Bedlam and the two figures at its gates,
Streets without end and churches numberless,
Statues with flowery gardens in vast squares,
The Monument, and Armoury of the Tower.
