Laughter rings out to the heavens Birds sing loudly in the trees while still Others peck at forgotten hot dogs and pretzels. Lovers walk hand in hand along The gilded sunlit waters edge Gazing into each others eyes and Smiling at some shared memory Children running in and out of cold Fountains playing freeze tag Begging for firecracker iceys and Watching the frequent dance performances Radios are blasting hip-hop and r&b From chamillionare to rhianna to the funkadelics The den of vendors plying their trade heavy, 2 for $20, get your portraits right here. Spider-man and statue of liberty impersonators Stop and pose for pictures with tourists Spidey even jumps on a few 'walls' for the kids And me in the midst of everyday city life Camera in hand taking it all in Enjoying the FREEDOM of it all, The simplicities of our exhistence! Only in NYC can I experience the exhilirahting Feelings of timelessness, joy and appreciation for life Like catching the exact moment on a girls face When her father scoops her up and tickles her. All while eating a vanilla "Mr. Softee" That is gently leaking down my hand With an amazing sunset on the water Skyscrapers as the backdrop while the Ferry blows its final farewell for the day... Simply bliss.
