The poem Dr Qvortrup recites on Waterloo Bridge is 'After Lunch'. The lyrics are below:

 After Lunch:

 On Waterloo Bridge, where we said our goodbyes,


 the weather conditions bring tears to my eyes.


 I wipe them away with a black woolly glove


 And try not to notice I've fallen in love.



 On Waterloo Bridge I am trying to think:


 This is nothing. you're high on the charm and the drink.


 But the juke-box inside me is playing a song


 That says something different. And when was it wrong?



On Waterloo Bridge with the wind in my hair


 I am tempted to skip. You're a fool. I don't care.


 the head does its best but the heart is the boss-


 I admit it before I am halfway across.

By Wendy Cope (Born 1945 and one of England's most popular poets. )
