Poetry in Motion

Did you know that every season (spring, summer, autumn, winter) six poems are chosen to be displayed in tube carriages across London?

This summer the chosen poems include one by Wendy Cope set on Waterloo Bridge called “After the Lunch”. You can read this and many more at www.tfl.gov.uk/poems.

What do you think of this poem by Wendy Cope? Is it easy to understand? Have you ever been in a situation where your head and your heart are telling you to do different things? What did you decide to do?
