City of my dreams, like pearl the dew
Of fairyland is folding over you;
the vapored domes
Of churches, and of less eternal homes
Of civic and industrial worth, are caught
Together in a soft mirage, fraught
With spiraled mists;
A dreamland fancy, kissed
Through with sunlight.
Now the white
And alabaster city-hall
Obtrudes its shawl
Of yellow above the blight
Of shadow all about,
And half in doubt
Accepts its curtain-call upon a stage
Prosceniumed with Heaven's vaulted arch.
No march
Of time or tide can halt,
Nor man exalt,
Splender's regal page
Of tracery. Like beam
From memory's hand,
Like Odin's sempiternal chaste Valhalla, seems
The city of my dreams!
