“Childhood is measured out by sounds and smells and sights, before the dark hour of reason grows.”
John Betjeman

“And marbled clouds go scudding by
The many-steepled London sky.”
John Betjeman, Selected Poems

“Come friendly bombs and fall on Slough!
It isn't fit for humans now,
There isn't grass to graze a cow.
Swarm over, Death!”
John Betjeman
