The Shard

Poem
"My New Zealand Woolen Gloves"

For today's post we introduce you to the Shard in case you haven't come across it yet. It is a tall, sharp-pointed, triangular building of glass and steel under construction in London England. It will be complete in May and open to the public in June. It will be the tallest building in Europe, but only approximately one third as tall as the tallest in the world. Some more info can be found here as the photos are copyright. It looks quite fascinating, and promises to be the star attraction in London for tourists, along with the Olympics in July. Poor old London Eye!
