Millennium Bridge - LONDON

Millennium Bridge stands majestically on a blustery Autumn’s day,

In the air, birds fly to warmer climates passing by on their way.

Lights illuminate from the latest Tate Modern exhibition,

Leggy models confidently pose in next season’s swimwear without inhibition.

Energetic joggers run in preparation for the London Marathon drawing near,

Night time – Millennium a beautiful red-head walks by as men stop and leer,

New Year’s Eve, revellers gather together in celebration filled with festive cheer.

In the spring breeze, the tv crew films the latest episode of ‘Hustle,’

Under the bridge, tourists travel along the Thames, the city and its bustle.

Millennium Bridge glistens in the midsummer heat,

Brazillian samba rhythms resonate from a crowded street.

Rows of people gather around the street entertainer by nearby Blackfriars station,

In a busy afternoon, the police carry out their latest anti-terrorist operation.

Dozens of people walk along the Millennium,

Great is the diversity of Bridge life as one can see,

Evening sky shines upon Millennium as the young couple walks in love and ever so carefree.

    I've swung on the bridge many times in sun and rain on my way to the Tate - I love it and a great write FB

      Hello Michael.

      Many thanks for reading.

      Millennium Bridge is lovely but Albert Bridge along Chelsea Embankment is my favourite bridge.

        Heading to the other Tate I quite like solid structures of Lambeth and Vauxhall (with its sculptures) - both often overlooked in favour of the more eye- catching bridges.

            Good write FineB, I could see all those sights and people on that bridge.

            I have never seen it myself though.
