Lights across the city

by Jem Croucher

DSCN1793

Bright lights across the city
and me fifteen floors high
I have a perfect vista
‘Neath a dark and starless sky

High above the lane of Bear
In Leeds, West Yorkshire way
Where I’ve travelled to from Southern lands
to work just for a day

It’s so quiet and peaceful
up here, yet very bright
A hundred thousand streetlamps
of a city lit at night
