On Holiday


Mercy! 16th note -heartbeats per measure,

Soul hiatus,Liberty Bell treasure.

Philadelphia spawned the dalliance

of my leisure, whilst on holiday,

and afforded the pleasure.

"God bless the Child", as grace

sought and found,"Willows weep not"

I'm vacation bound.

A friend, Eleanora: by my side,

in the first week of April,

as the Day transpires-

Warm as the sun like an Easter

days outing...Hours

are like minutes, and fruits never


Stuyvasents Harlem,too far from there now,

Eleanora and I, yet together somehow,

At a pub in a restaurant,

a jukebox displays, emotions we feel-

whilst on Holiday.
