Sunset in Baltimore

I have seen the silence

Of the city's coat of snow

And I have heard the grasses

Through the sidewalk try to grow

 

I have walked the alleys

As the chatter fell to rest

And I have seen the nightly winds

And felt them in my chest

 

I have passed the bayside

And weeks ago I stalled

As ripples chased each other

To the edges of the wall

 

And I remember thinking

'What a luxury today

With all the fears of old resolved,

To sit and watch the bay.'
