James Banks


New Aged Harlem


I hope that one day I could revive what was called a dream
Dreams that made to inspire the creativity of the people
That we could one day fill the entire city with the midnight blues to help us sleep
I hoped that we could live to see the day when people of all colors and all religion will sit down at the same table to sing the songs of community
I hoped that some how some way that back in those years what was called harlem will no longer be renaissance but that we initiate it into our every day lives and carry those hopes and dreams onto the higher tower or the lowest ground.

I hope for New Aged Harlem

    The reveries of Harlem are indeed romantic, one longs for the revival of such lovely dreams. Unfortunately they have become redundant but they have also metamorphic into modern sites such as Poemhunter. Read mine – My Heart Is Native –

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
