Science poems on London’s Underground

London’s Poems on the Underground has had poems sitting alongside ads on the Tube for many years. I always enjoyed reading one of these little verses, a bright spot in an often crowded box of sullen human cargo.

Now, in recognition of the Royal Society’s 350th anniversary, they’ve has selected six poems offering reflections on the subject of science. Read about it, and read the poems, on the Royal Society page here or Transport for London here.

Thanks to the Aussie for the tip.
