London in Quotations: William Dunbar

London, thou art of townes A per se. / Soveraign of cities, seemliest in sight, / Of high renoun, riches and royaltie; / Of lordis, barons, and many a goodly knyght; / Of most delectable lusty ladies bright; / Of famous prelatis, in habitis clericall; / Of merchauntis full of substaunce and of myght: / London, thou art the flour of Cities all.

William Dunbar (c.1456-c.1513)
