Favorite Quote:
\"To see the world in a grain of sand and a heaven in a wildflower, hold infinity in the palm of your hand and eternity in an hour.\" --William Blake


The summer air is thick with musical notes
Ink blots brought alive from fluttering pages
Soaring into the mass of people
Meandering gently along the river
Twisting and dancing in the setting sun
Each one is so small in existence
Just one mark on a lonely page
But together they carry dreams
And hopes, aspirations to touch the sky
Each glide gracefully to touch the soul of the people
And it is another evening gone by
On the esplanade


The author's comments:
This poem was inspired by the evenings I spent sitting on the esplanade along the Charles River listening to The Landmarks Orchestra play their beautiful classical music.
