Sunday Morning New York City

A little slower slide on the low west side

Take a Chelsea ride on the High Line steel

You can go for miles penetrate the styles

That flow between the subway tiles and dreams

Glide through that groove, that vibe

The island time and feel

Sunday morning, New York City

Orchards blooming sweet, off Delancey street

Cherry blossoms cheat the fading sun
Iron clad the walls of tenements and halls

‘Cause no one there will heed the fall of time

Sweep the grit doors open wide

To let in its perfume

Sunday morning, New York City

The Lake stills as space expands to fill its history

Central Park will tame the pulse
 of Manhattan’s majesty
The boulders black, the vibrant green 

Softening the manic stream

Fingertips reveal the curious concealed

The unobserved that yields a certain charm

Hands will hold and guide and soothe the ripping tide

That overflows along canals and piers

Wander through that moving feast

The urban wondrous zeal 
Sunday morning, New York City
