Capitol Hill in the Spring by Jake Aller

 

 

Sitting on a bench

In Lincoln Park

 

Heart of Capitol Hill

Beating heart of the Empire

On a warm Spring Day

 

Watching the Cherry trees

Watching Me

 

Wondering what thoughts

They must have heard

The things they have seen

Over the years

 

But they are quiet

They do not say a word

As I fall into my spring time dreams

Sitting on that bench

 

Seeing the children and dogs play

Looking at Spring flowers

And pretty women

 

As they stroll by

Hearing the city

 

As I dream of my past life

Memories of places and people

 

I said to myself

What a wonderful life
