Tours of Manhattan

Hot dogs on 72nd and Broadway
Simple pleasure of perfection
Walking south on CPW
As horses pull carriages through Central Park

Tangerines in season
Roasted chestnuts on Christmas Eve
Harbingers of times remembered
To be shared anew

New York City in all its glory
Center of the universe
Strawberry Fields convocation
Wrapped in ribbons of orange

Glass walled skyscrapers
Paired with Gilded age era
Art Deco legacies
Of a forgotten past

Immigrants on Ellis Island
Castle Garden
Bowling Green
The Staten Island ferry

Tours of Manhattan
Atop double-decker buses
Parades on Fifth Avenue
The Arch at Washington Square

Neverland on Broadway
In a human peddled carriage
Ghosts of remembrance
Old and every day new
