From Woodside Terminal

From Woodside Terminal...
Approaching Pier Head

Engine throbs in a Mersey Beat
closing in; docking, as stone grey river
refection of sky meets seaweed
clad wall, of regenerated waterfront

old bricks razed to the ground for the
ascent of modernistic clean lines
of investment, with skyline heli-pads and
geometric shapes of staggered height

except for the 'Three Graces' of
early 20th century architecture,
bearing their individuality as
goddesses of Liverpool.
