A plaque at Coventry Station remembers Philip Larkin:

I REMEMBER, I REMEMBER
COMING UP ENGLAND BY A DIFFERENT LINE
FOR ONCE, EARLY IN THE COLD NEW YEAR.
WE STOPPED, AND, WATCHING MEN WITH NUMBER-PLATES
SPRINT DOWN THE PLATFORM TO FAMILIAR GATES,
"WHY, COVENTRY!" I EXCLAIMED. "I WAS BORN HERE".
PHILIP LARKIN
POET AND COVENTRIAN
( 1922 - 1985 )
