In the Old City

The bell tower tolls

Upon the hour

Along the river coast

For all the ships

And the bridge is alight

As the sun fades down

Into the late nights

History still lives

Breathing amongst the old buildings

Every purpose new and modern

In a world apart

From all we know

We walk

Sudden time travelers

Finding ourselves

Outside every familiar space

Seeing anew

Where the old city waits ~ Caroline A. Slee
