Empty Bench at Euston

A day will come
that I'll forget all this
the severity of the time even
when my heart was rife with pain. 
I'll be the white bench
that remains empty
so I may sit on it
and stare into the expanse
where drops of water
like some formless substance wait
to become the apparel of the wind.

London Euston

London Euston is a Central London railway terminus in the London Borough of Camden. Euston was the first inter city railway station to be built in London. The station was first opened on 20th July 1837 constructed by William Cubitt. Until 1844, trains were pulled up the incline to Camden Town by cables because the London and Birmingham Railway's Act of Parliament prohibited the use of locomotives in the Euston area; this prohibition is said to have been at the request of Lord Southampton, who owned land bordering this section of the line.

The City Of Newcastle

The Newcastle city is located on north bank of the river Tyne, the city in the area that was the location of the Roman settlement Pons Aelius. The city now owes it's name to the castle built in 1080 AD by Robert II Duke of Normandy, the eldest son William the conqueror.

The Newcastle city is now the twentieth most populous city in England. Newcastle was voted as the Best City in the North in April 2007 by The Daily Telegraph newspaper - beating Liverpool, Manchester, Sheffield and Leeds in an online poll conducted of its readers. The UK's first biotechnology village, the "Centre for Life" is located in the city centre close to the Central Station. The village is the first step in the City Council's plans to transform Newcastle into a science city.

The regional nickname for people from Newcastle and the surrounding area is Geordie.
