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
