Oxford

Tolkien, Carroll and Lewis discussed
theit creations in your cafes.
Architectural marvels to admire.
Now i have seen you briefly.
I know you better.
For just the briefest moments
I learnt more of Alice.
Burnings of friar monks
ordered by Bloody Mary.
Puntings on the River Avon.
Shelley drowned.
Naked wanderings on university lawns.

I did not stay long.
Just the merest of monents
but i know you more.
Thank you for the enlightenment.
