City


Cities come and go
life and dead
distant towns berths
City of hiding places
City of beer and love
a bustling city
city streets
City of fate and struggle
do not know what city
cities did not said
the silent city
City of revolution
where blood spilled city
City no longer exists
which is a world city
city of dreams
restless city
flower city of hippies
John Lennon said city
City of no religion and hatred
who are the cities?
Cities do not know
maybe the city of God?

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Your hands lie open in the long fresh grass, --

Your eyes smile peace. The pasture gleams and glooms
