Broadway - Poem by Carl Sandburg

I shall never forget you, Broadway
Your golden and calling lights.

I’ll remember you long,
Tall-walled river of rush and play.

Hearts that know you hate you
And lips that have given you laughter
Have gone to their ashes of life and its roses,
Cursing the dreams that were lost
In the dust of your harsh and trampled stones.
