Spirit of Brighton By Robin Tulley
What makes our city the place to be?
Betwixt the downs and the calming sea
Is it the folk who are slow to pass judgement?
Who are liberal of mind and of kind intent
Is there a secret to its calming ways?
Of peaceful living and halcyon days
Is it its heritage so long and so proud?
Or it's risqué reputation that attracts a crowd
Perhaps its the draw of its regency reputation
That lured a prince and shocked a nation
The rich and the famous have all left their mark
Even the humble fisherman who sailed the Sky Lark
Politicians and actors have all vied for attention
To ensure that their exploits all had a mention
How can one define its magical charm?
That draws people back to seek out its calm
What is the essence of its beckoning appeal?
Its people for sure understand how you feel
