A Stone Walled Heart

written by: Anne G

Take a walk

Through

Ole New York

 

Legacy of history

Of what was

And now would be

 

Crossroads of New Amsterdam

St. Andrews, Reade

& Centre Street

 

Buildings hewn in granite stone

Raised by master artisans

Craftsmen from across the seas

 

Deftly sculpted carved façades

Formed by calloused fingertips

Reminiscent of a bygone past

 

Neoclassic monuments

Corinthian fluted

Colonnades

 

Gracing doorways of today

Architecture from afar

Marvels of antiquity

 

Long forgotten memories

Masses of humanity

Pride and Shame

 

Bittersweet reality

Days and nights

Hunger and cold

 

Some would rise

Others would fall

New found wealth or barebones life

 

Betwixt

Between

The Good and Bad

 

Beauty stands before your eyes

Wonders in a

A Stone Walled Heart

Why write?

I write because I am:

Driven to distraction by the inequities of the society in which we live.
Motivated by cruelty, abuse, ignorance and indifference.

My intention:To poke, prod and provoke!
