I have seen all there is to see in this City.
We have gone here many times for business and pleasure.
I have visited the river that split Bangor in two
and the bridge that made it whole again.
I have walked its roads, I know they run
parallel to each other. The buildings are of stone
and bricks, wearing old age’s grandeur.
There are pockets of green on the side of the road,
growing lush and wild in the summer.
I have seen them. I have seen them all.
On that gray day, where rain fell in a drizzle
everything looked bleaker than usual.
We turned a corner, a branch full of flowers
hang from the wild boughs – mock orange blossoms,
I supposed. I stopped to take pictures,
and was surprised to behold wildroses ~
Where wildroses bloom
even the unpleasant road
casts Eden’s shadow.
