The Song of the Cities - Hong Kong

Rudyard Kipling

Hail, Mother! Hold me fast; my Praya sleeps
      Under innumerable keels to-day.
    Yet guard (and landward) or to-morrow sweeps
      Thy warships down the bay.

Praya was the name for the corniche or seaside road that ran alongside the harbour in Hong Kong.
