Liberty

 

Quince Street, Philadelphia

Quince Street, Philadelphia

Listen little girl–
You on Quince’s stones.
Can you hear an echo
Of the cracked bell’s tones?

Hear Liberty reverberate–
after all this time.
Listen for a moment,
to its hopeful chime.

The Diner

New York City

New York City

It’s eight o’clock–
An early start.
I have far to walk.
I’ll find a place to eat–
A favorite diner.
It’s on 34th Street.
I see it on my right–
A neon sign.
The chrome is bright.
People wait around the door–
A hungry crowd.
I’ll have to wait a little more.
Soon I have my little space–
A cozy booth.
It’s a perfect place.
The server brings my plate–
A hearty dish.
It was worth the wait.
Now, I’m ready for that long walk–
A tour of the city.
It’s nine o’clock.
