BROADWAY IN THE OZARKS: NIGHT, by            
First Line: The tall, flung trees
Last Line: The virgin, noisy night untouched by man-made melody.
Subject(s): Ozarks (mountains)


The tall, flung trees,
Peopled by whirring wings,
Speak stridently into one of summer's neon nights.

The big, pale moon
Saunters slowly down the skies ...
Times Square surrounded by the stars' headlights.

The little lightning-bugs
Flash on, wink off,
Dots and dashes on the screens of shadows' density;

This, before my eyes,
Is oldest bedlam --
The virgin, noisy night untouched by man-made melody.
