A CITY SPRINGTIME

A LITTLE SARCASTIC—SOME WOULD SAY REALISTIC—MAYBE!!

OUR POETRY CORNER

A CITY SPRINGTIME

Springtime in the city

With smells and lights and sound,

Sometimes it’s even pretty

And nice to walk around…

Dumpster fires in the Valley

Start smouldering on cue,

The number no one tallies

But over summer, quite a few!

Springtime brings flowers

Of trees set in concrete,

Folks whiling away hours

Searching for something to eat…

Watching the latest version

Of an urban building’s fate,

Hoping economic magic

Depopulates the sewer grate.

Springtime in the city

With smell and sight and sound,

Sometimes it’s even pretty

And nice to walk around…

Spring time in the city

Where some dreams ne’er come true,

And life turns rather gritty

If the city gets to you.
