Please look at the picture and scroll down to the poem. Thank you.
New York Dawn Earth has not anything to show so fair: Dull would he be of soul who could pass by A sight so touching in its majesty: New York now doth, like a garment, wear The beauty of the morning; silent, bare, Concrete canyons, theatres, walkways, the avenues lie Waiting for their throngs, as orange dawn lights the sky; Never did sun so beautifully steep In his first splendour, valley, rock or hill; Ne'er saw I, never felt, a calm so deep! New York will awake at its own sweet will. Dear God! the very buildings seem asleep; And all New York's mighty heart is lying still! ************* Almost all based on "Composed upon Westminster Bridge, September3, 1802" by William Wordsworth.
