Many readers may have seen the Walt Disney movie Mary Poppins, which takes place in a romanticized and fictionalized London. One of the most striking scenes in this memorable musical is the haunting and beautiful Feed The Birds.
In the song an elderly woman gently begs for money to feed the dozens of pigeons which gather around the square in front of London's majestic St. Paul's Cathedral.
It's a memorable moment.
If you find yourself on the steps of St. Paul's and are familiar with the song it's not hard to hear its soft tune in your head as you sit quietly, watching the world go by.
