Oh, London is a Man’s Town

by Henry Van Dyke

Oh, London is a man's town; there's power in the air;
And Paris is a woman's town, with flowers in her hair.
—Henry Van Dyke, American author and clergyman




November 10, 1852   
Today is the birthday of the American author and clergyman Henry Van Dyke.
Henry gave us an epic saying that gardeners often quote about spring.
