St George-in-the-East

When men were all asleep the snow came flying,
In large white flakes falling on the city brown…

Nicholas Hawksmoor's St George-in-the-East, Cannon Street Road, Shadwell, Tower Hamlets, E1

Stealthily and perpetually settling and loosely lying,
Hushing the latest traffic of the drowsy town…

From Robert Bridges’ London Snow (1890)
