We have spent a brilliant couple of days in Oxford. We were very fortunate to be able to climb Magdalen Tower and have a birds eye view of this wonderful and historic city. Last night we were able to attend the formal dinner in the Hall at Magdalen with my nephew. This was an atmospheric candle lit black tie dinner. One I won’t ever forget...very Harry Potter!!


Spires steeples and bustling streets

Quiet corners where couples meet

Bikes with bells ringing 

Choirs cheerfully singing

In cafe bars society chatters

Current affairs and everyday matters

Bow ties scarves and college colours

Students away from their sisters and brothers  

This is a place of learning

For those educated, the quite discerning 

This is a city of tradition

Of academia and ambition. 

This is Oxford.
