The Gallery


Tour the Gallery at will;
Entrance fee? Precisely nil.
See Old Masters.....sorry...... Young.
See how well the art is hung.
Take that bird with brilliant wings.
I'd love to hear the song it sings.
Take the jolly octopus;
Smiling as though he's one of us.
That little bee beside its hive
Could almost be buzzing and alive!
Everyone must long to tarry
Enjoying the work of Max and Harry.


Inside the City Hall the evening is beginning.
Still there is daylight but the dusk will very soon be winning.
My eyes, accustomed to the dark, are startled by the sight
Of the Civic Park, across the way, still bathed in brilliant light.
