Gotham City


A city of justice,
Of purity and sheer peace;
Where Jason returns the fleece
And no war kills its bliss.

A city of equality,
With utmost disdain for duplicity,
In an atmosphere of tranquility
A residence for unity.

A city of morality
With a radiance of spirituality
Like the Olympus City,
The home of Greek divinity.

A city for all and sundry,
Under the roof of a blue sky;
Where the sun, after the cloud's cry,
Comes to mop its land dry.

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
