We mounted the Dover Coach at Charing Cross. It was a beautiful morning. The city, St Paul's, with the River and a multitude of little Boats, made a most beautiful sight and we crossed Westminster Bridge. THe houses were not overhung by their cloud of smoke and they were spread out endlessly, yet the sun shone so brightly with such a pure light, that there was even something like the purity of one of nature's own grand spectacles.


don't wanna be a recluse
don't want the wool over my eyes
been living in an igloo
up in the sky
now my final hour will be
the iceberg cracking the warm salt breath of the sea

cause we have got no lifeboat
for when the water starts to rise
and we have got no raincoat to keep us dry
and i can't fathom the deep
hydrothermal and thermoclinal marine
i don't have that machine

but if we had that lifeboat
and struck out on the morning tide
all wrapped up in our raincoats
all warm inside
then why couldn't any dream
a life inside of the whale inside of the sea
