Alight Here: New Site Looking For Photos, Poems Of Tube Stations

Why didn't we think of this idea? Ask Londoners to write short poems to their favourite (or otherwise) Tube station, and submit beautiful images to sit alongside.

Alight Here takes this simple but compelling idea as its sole purpose. It's a brand new site, so there's currently not much there, although we did enjoy this oddly spelled paean to Edgware:

Beware the edge at Edgeware

And mind the prickly hedge where

Napoleon apparently sat there

On his way to somewhere;

Anywhere other than Edgeware.

Think you can do better? Submit your verse and snaps to alighthere@gmail.com.

I think the Amateur Transplants' song qualifies as poetry, but I'm not sure where the beautiful image fits in.
It's like TFL's annual promotion of nominating your most friendly local tube staff - immediate disqualification..
How does one aligh there, anyway?
