Early morning, quiet city
New Year`s Day
the only sounds;
water dripping into the sewers
and the church bells.
At the appointed hour
a transformation occurs
an explosion of people,
music and colors abound.
A city wide block party
lasting into the night
where everyone is family,
if only this feeling could last all year;
All hail the Mummers.
