	RED IN RUSSELL SQUARE AND OTHER LONDON IMPRESSIONS

	By Michael E. Stone


		     I

	Red flowers in Russell Square
	Dogs in Russell Square
	Some as big as sheep
	Special red bins for dog poop
	As red as the postboxes
	and the telephone booths.


		    II

	Chaos of polychrome people
	hurrying by before the hotel
	English girls with short skirts and heels,
	Moslem girls with kerchiefs
	Men in suits
	or short sleeved shirts
	or knitted shirts and knee shorts.
