Rhododendrons And The Hudson River

entry picture

Unexpected botanical specimens appreciated as we wait

Rhododendrons growing wild, well untamed at any rate

We want to see it after dark, adding textures, night views

Navigated Hell’s Kitchen, towards our Liberty Cruise

Flowers near the ferry office, she takes photos up close

Standing back I admire, a poem in my head I compose

The tour starts, Liberty awaiting our pleasure

Our Guide talks of real estate prices, work and leisure

New Yorkers who wouldn’t live anywhere else whatever

The Big Apple gets in your blood, a tie you can never sever

And he’s right. As we cross dark water, a starry sky above

Oh yes, here is a City of which you just have to fall in love

And there she stands, on her Island, her torch held high

Billion of photos exist already, cameras click as we pass by

More memories made, more images of Liberty, of course

“I never get tired of her” guide declares. A view I endorse

Camera cards holding images like so many times before

Tour over all too soon, another experience, back to shore
