Directions to Fitzgerald’s

Bolton Hill, Baltimore

Bolton Hill, Baltimore

Stop a yellow bullet with your bare hand.
Fire it again, and ride it through this land.
Journey up the hill, natives call the Mount.
Pass the obelisk and the sparkling fount.
Near the hub, where the weary will arrive,
the minutes left for you are under five.
Turn to face the way of pale, fading light.
Find Park and see how tender is the night.

 

Coloring Fun!

Baltimore, Maryland

Baltimore, Maryland

Colors from a little box
Will help me make this right.
These drab and boring pages
Will finally be bright.

A moment’s hesitation,
To pick the perfect hue,
And then I strike a page
With my trusty royal blue.

Already it looks better!
And Mommy looks so glad;
But I think another color
Is something I should add.

Lines of color everywhere–
I think this page is done.
I’ll just turn this over,
And have more coloring fun!

A Stack of Books

Baltimore, Maryland

A stack of books,
In front of me.
Lots of fun when
Read by Mommy.
She acts funny as she talks,
I’ve even watched her show me
How a monkey walks!
She sounds funny when she speaks,
She barks and moos, and sometimes squeaks!
She wonders why I want to read them,
So many times a day.
Well, all you have to do is watch her—what else can I say?
