THE EMPIRE STATE BUILDING, by            
First Line: Proudly she rears her head on high
Last Line: And look in disdain on the old queen's bier!


Proudly she rears her head on high,
Stretching her arms into the sky.
Fleecy clouds have veiled her eyes
From dazzling sunbeams, as daylight dies.
The strong wind holds her in his embrace,
And boldly strives to uncover her face.
In quiet aloofness she towers above
Discarded remains of the city's love.
Tomorrow, perhaps, a new bride will appear,
And look in disdain on the old queen's bier!
