Title: The City of York

York,. It has drawn the crowds from past to present day
The Romans came, built their walls, the City to protect
Vikings crossed the stormy seas .Ebor to detect
A fiery race, came to conquer yet did not have their way

Museums many York has, and gardens open to all
Ghost walks take a tour at night with tales of ghastly deeds
Of plague ridden hovels and murders in muddy river's reeds
And ghostly legions march through certain cellar walls

York today still draws the crowds, it's treasures to explore
Near the old railway museum now stands the great York eye
Take a ride, take in the vista 'neath Yorkshire’s open sky
And if the day is clear, see racecourse .ings and moor

coming down again to ground, in need of some repast
take in the many street cafes, the winebars which abound
Or the renowned olde worlde tearoom which cannot be surpassed
York.it’s treasures on display.Never ceases to astound.
