Thank you so much for echoing what the rest of us remember and feel. Those memories, those streets and the values we learned on them helped make us into the people we are today. Here is one I wrote about another aspect of our life in the Bronx....


No one knew
That lilacs grew
By the street’s edge
‘Neath the sill’s ledge.
No one knew.

No one knew
Of the sweet scent
That heaven sent
While we talked
On the sidewalk.
No one knew.

No one knew
That the Bronx had flowers
And lovely sun showers
That nourished them all
Until the start of fall.

No one knew.
