Twas late, with shadows all round
Crunchy leaves lay on the ground
I pulled my coat close feeling the bite
The first signs of Autumn amid starlight
I set my gaze upon the ink black sky
Not a soul to be found anywhere near by
My delight was surely complete
As the heavens glowed I took a seat
Far above twinkle a myriad stars
Some seemed close and others so far
A delightful conversation above
Perhaps a gentle whisper of love
Many declarations bold and bright
Proclaimed so proudly in twinkling light
If only I could understand the language they spoke
Perhaps a story of innocence bespoke
Stories as ancient as the passing of time
Captured then displayed so sublime
Perhaps they twinkle a whisper of things yet to come
A symphony of music joyous and welcome
A feast for our eyes to behold
As many stories before us unfold.
If Sidewalks could talk! The tales they could tell.
Location, Location, Location!
Could you imagine being a sidewalk in New York City? Ouch! Talk about getting walked on!
A voice far away pipes up, “I am debonaire suave sophisticated, “I see stars!” on the Hollywood walk of fame.”
“Put your hands on me, ooh la la, your famous “hand prints” leave me breathless, have you no shame?”
“While you may have seen much, I have weathered storms, witnessed great romances, and watched the delicate bud of youth blossom”, the oldest of sidewalks pipes up.”
Another says, “I need an upgrade, i fear i may choke. A weed eater will never do! Those cracks, weeds and grass have nearly overcome me, I need new!”
“I am happy, i see children aplenty, painting with chalk, and I have hop scotches galore!”
“Well, I am mysterious! I am covered with chalk outlines.”
“You fool! I am not a stove, why are you cracking eggs on me? I am sweltering down here!”
Indeed, if sidewalks could talk!
