Henry Howarth Bashford Quote

As I came down the Highgate Hill,
The Highgate Hill, the Highgate Hill,
As I came down the Highgate Hill
I met the sun's bravado,
And saw below me, fold on fold,
Grey to pearl and pearl to gold,
This London like a land of old,
The land of Eldorado.


London, from Romances (1917). Compare: Alfred Noyes, Go down to Kew in Lilac-time.
