The winds will blow their own freshness into you,
and the storms their energy,
while cares will drop away from you
like the leaves of Autumn.

Little Venice surrounds the convergence of three waterways: the Grand Union Canal and the Regent’s Canal, and Paddington Basin which meet in a large picturesque pool, called ‘Browning’s Pool’ (usually called by residents (“the Lagoon”), which forms the focus of the area.
