The Bright Green Lights Of A New York Night... - Poem by Frank James Ryan Jr (FjR)

O'er th' waters of Hudson each midnite
Stars o' emerald be seen o'er streetlite
Its necklace of light sweeps down low
To New Yorker's it's just staus quo

Snap-shot for tourists to awe and sigh
For Westsided dweller's to cover their eyes
Cable high-beams invade window drapes
still a fair trade-off for Hudsons nightscape

Starlites o' green, swoop like pearl's 'o jade
God-Kissed...yet architectually man-made
What be these bright images round, sparkled beads
It's New Yorks George Washington Bridge that you see!

________________*_______________
Writt en while parked at the 96th Street Boat
Basin...off the Westside Highway overlooking
the Hudson River, one N.Y. May night, musing.
