Alone In Ann Arbor Poem by Uriah Hamilton

Alone In Ann Arbor

Rating: 4.8

I walked alone
In Ann Arbor last night,
But you were
With me again on South Main
Among the college kids,
The restaurants and book stores,
Everyone moving around,
The folk music
Coming from the Ark;
Sweet Lady, you’ve won my heart,
Even though we continue to linger
So painfully apart.

And did you hang out at the Pretzel Bell? And yell 'GO BLUE! ' Lovely college town, Ann Arbor. Spent much of my life there - wonderful sentimental trip down memory lane. Thanks, Uriah! Linda

The solid image of a specific place is a foundation for a universal experience. The language is also elegant, I add. I liked the twinge when the reader realizes what 'you were with me' really means.

A lovely poem about love, Uriah. Sometimes a certain heartache becomes even more prevalant when we visit all those favorite hotspots without that special someone. Well done.
