Excerpt from Lord Northcliffe: A Memoir There is a spot, a paradise on earth, Within short distance of the city's toils, Where Londoner, fatigued by noisy streets Or pent-up office, can his health repair. There the fresh breezes from the glorious Heath, The blanched cheek with colour can supply - There from the heights the city can be seen All draped in clouds from many a chimney's smoke: Then, turning round and looking west, descry Far o'er the mead the glistening Brent's smooth tide, And further still from out the trees is seen The slender spire of Harrow's distant church. Down in the grassy vale with hedges lined The swiftly moving train its journey makes, Breathing out mists of snowy cloudless hue, Which hasten upward to their kind above. There Cockney sportsman whiles away his time With rod and line, surrounded by his friends, Who eagerly the bobbing floatlet watch. Perchance a tiny perch the bait allures, And then 'tis good as many a playhouse scene To watch the excitement of the achieving crowd. There the proud avenue its head rears high, And smilingly looks down on happy pairs - There the bright gorse with yellow blossoms gay, The sunny heath with pleasing light illumes - There by a shady walk neath ancient trees, A spring whose virtues are unbounded, flows, Above, a tiny lake, down in yon vale - An ancient-looking castle meets the eye - The ivy-mantled church with slated spire, The narrow straggling streets - the beauteous views - To enumerate the charms of this fair spot Would occupy the span of many a life. Hampstead - the spot which most of all I love, The place of which I never yet have tired. 250 pages. Only a few library stamps/markings.
