Lord Byron (1788–1824)
 
(From Don Juan)

A MIGHTY mass of brick, and smoke, and shipping,
  Dirty and dusky, but as wide as eye
Could reach, with here and there a sail just skipping
  In sight, then lost amidst the forestry
Of masts; a wilderness of steeples peeping        5
  On tiptoe through their sea-coal canopy;
A huge, dun cupola, like a foolscap crown
  On a fool’s head,—and there is London Town!
