Chicago- The Red Bistrot 2

Manhattan-Bound

By Jack Hannula

[ i ]

On this day thee hast me found

On this bus -Manhattan-bound

To hear its sights; to hear its sound;

Discover why it’s well-renowned.

Though winter weekend, I’ll there stay

To stroll the streets & while away

The quickened time & frozen day;

The views across the distant bay.

[ ii ]

Oh! Wonder, I, what greets my time

Around the corner much as I’m…

Turning, spinning on a dime

As if I am a ghostly mime.

And so it is this gray weekend

Its memories to my heart I’ll send

The flocks of thoughts I’ll duly blend

And hold them so they’ll never end!
