LOWERY STREET STATION, a poem

It began with a French kiss
on Lowery Street Station  
kindling infatuation
that burned into love
without likely end

Dancing in Greenwich Village
the Amato Opera
strolling East River Walk
sealed the relationship
into a lifetime bond

Raising a family
with three boys and a girl
dogs, rabbits, squirrels,
fish, birds, chipmunks
life worth living

(May 26, 2017. Ginger and I were returning from dancing at Gildea’s in Sunnyside on our second date in 1954. We were on the Lowery Street Station platform en route to Manhattan, to Cornell’s student nursing school residence at New York Hospital.)
