iPhone : My love and I watched the sun leave the sky
And we kissed in the fast fading light
Most people say they love London by day
But lovers love London by night

iPhone : Lucy Worsley Deep in the dark that envelops the park
There's romance in each cigarette glow
Down by the Thames, lights that sparkle like gems
Seem to wink at each girl and her beau

iPhone : London by night is a wonderful sight
There is magic abroad in the air
Im often told that the streets turn into gold
When the moon shines on circus and square

iPhone : Such an extraordinary privilege to have this place to myself this midsummer morning. I’m very sad our visitors aren’t getting the chance to enjoy it with me but ONE DAY SOON The Tower of London
