A quiet moment

I’m at the Angel Islington
in the heart of London town
Waiting by the tunnel
for traffic to come down
There are watercraft here waiting
close to where I am
Engines chugging in a queue
A canal boat traffic jam

The water, green and sluggish
reflects a bygone time
rekindled by these barges here
all waiting in a line
And despite the close proximity
to London’s furious pace
It’s so very quiet and peaceful
that down here that’s not the case

The Islington Tunnel carries the Regent’s Canal Arm of the Grand Union Canal for 960 yards (878 m) underneath the Angel area of Islington, in London.
