Reflections (old and new)

In the waters of the Irwell
I see old but also new
A Manchester reflection
affords attractive view

Bordering the ancient banks
from an industrial past
Residential money means
the buildings here will last

Yet, despite the glass and concrete
there’s still a vestige there
in the arches of Blackfriars bridge
built with Victorian flair

Reflections of the old and new
Three centuries collide
Yet ‘tho the new has dominance
the old will still abide
