Jottings Of New York

Rating: 2.6

Because many of them are thirteen storeys high;

And as for Central Park, it is lovely to be seen--
Especially in the summer season when its shrubberies are green
And the Burns Statue is there to be seen,
Surrounded by trees on the beautiful sward so green;

Which by Scotchmen and Englishmen will never be forgot.
