A gallery of scenes, some broad, some tall,
What do they have in common, where’s the thread
of continuity? They capture all
the sense of where my “Downtown” thoughts have led.
From local towns or cities where we’ve fled,
Intent on living life, roam far and wide,
Return again to hometown streets instead,
“Downtown” implies a universal pride.
Ideals that man through ages can abide,
That form the core of who we are to be,
To know from whence we’ve come keeps us in stride,
‘gainst winds of strife that threaten all we see.
Urban scene or rural market space,
E’en whittled towns ‘neath firs; unique their place.
