This is an except of my published poem.
Springtime(past)at the WTC.


I am a Native New Yorker.
I was raised on hot roasting chestnuts and
Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade.
New Years Eve in Times Square.
Strolling Little Italy & the San Gennaro Festival.
The Spectacular views, & Broadway Theatres.
The Rockettes & Radio City Music Hall.

Wollman Rink & the Coca Cola Concert Series,
Central Park with its magnificent views.
Alice In Wonderland Statues and
Ice Skating at Rockefeller Plaza.
The United Nations & St. Patricks Cathedral.
Museums of Natural History & Modern Art.
Carnegie Hall and The Metropolitan Opera House.

Hansom Carriages across from the Plaza Hotel
Bloomingdales and Madison Square Garden.
Home of both the Championship NY Yankees & Mets.
Windows on the World as it existed in the WTC. The Beautiful Twins.
My college graduation dinner occured there.
Its breathtaking views swept you away.

Simply No Place Like NEW YORK at Night!.

Embracing waterviews of the South Street Seaport.
Jones Beach & Amphitheater (more concerts),
the L.I. Sound and Robert Moses and Coney Island.
I know that "THE END" means Montauk.
These are my favorite haunts,
I am a New Yorker.

I know many of you have read it and wanted to read it again. Thank You.

i think this one is my favorite of your poems--powerful, dynamic, and full of class (just like new york)

as i said before, on 9-11, we ALL became new yorkers, no matter where in the world we lived. they hit our city and our people. and they can't get away with it.

i will always remember and never forget.

(((HUGS))) and love, karla. :( *tears*
