The Postman’s Poem

In Praise of Postmen
King Edward Building – 1990  

Sorting, walking                                                                 DSC06603
laden with letters
EC1 to EC4
big ones, small ones
white ones, brown ones
Broadgate, Barbican
local stores.

Peabody flats in EC1
climbing endless
flights of stairs
Hatton Gardens
golden windows
jumping buses
paying fares.

Rest in park
before more sorting
deliveries that
must not fail
everything depends
on postmen
London’s lifeblood
Royal Mail.
