NEW YORK, by            
First Line: My city, maligned and found wanting
Last Line: We shall go wandering.
Subject(s): Cities; Wandering & Wanderers; Urban Life

My city, maligned and found wanting --
No airy graces, no white
Red-roofed houses, no fields of fragrance.
My city, so hurried and fearful,
So rushing to cover,
Hold me, hold me tonight.
Where dark waters brood
And fog horns sound warning,
And the sigh of your heart fills street after street,
We shall go wandering.
