I picked up this fantastic little book at Moorgate station last week…

Poems on the Underground at 30 …a little compilation from the priceless Poems on the Underground series which celebrates its 30th anniversary this year. Flicking through on the way home from my Ghosts of the Old City walk, I was delighted to find William Carlos Williams's This Is Just To Say was featured in the collection… 
Poems on the Underground at 30 It's a particular favorite of mine as it was the current Poem on the Underground when I first moved to London 24 years ago. My commute back then in that distant London summer took me from Woodside Park in the wilds of north London all the way to London Bridge and thence to New Cross where I worked at Goldsmiths College. On a hot, packed tube train, this poem took me away from it all and every time I read it I am transported back to those first few London days. I have loved the Poems on the Underground ever since. Happy birthday to a wonderful initiative.
