WONDERMENT By Polly Guerin




















A blade of grass stretched up and out 
Of it's concrete grave
The tulips stood on tippy toes to avoid
the shade
And reach the sun's warming rays

The barren trees were dressed for summer
Emerald green leaves seemed kissed by the sun

City sparrow's in cacophony sang a new song
The sun's melody brimming with joy I belong

And yonder a gray city squirrel darted in the race
Escaping automobile crush with lightening pace

An down by the water's east side  promenade
Sat city dreamers on voyages, far, very far

Away in Central Park a mother on guard
Crooned to her baby with love, no regard

Passing by two lovers united linked hands
The passing parade was mixed was grand

The sweethearts cared not what onlookers might say
Their joyous bonding they held discreet on display

And octogenarians determined not to fall
Whizzed by on their walkers never to stall

Bye and bye everyone seemed to feel better
It was indeed the warm welcoming weather

The sweet gentle sky of June without rain
Shared days of joy will never be the same

The blue of the sky brought  a smile to my face
An imaginary kite soared upward into space

A man held a door for a pretty lady to pass
It proved that he had breeding and class

A child on a scooter flashed by in a crush
His wounds were fleeting, crying non plus

The halcyon summer hours longer each day
Everyone rejoiced, wish they wouldn't go away

But the seasons are fickle, we knew it would end
May I remind you, treasure the moment, my friend!
