Last Night I Saw The City …

This is a piece of school work that is inspired by Andrew Fusek Peter’s poem “Last Night I Saw The City Breathing.

Last night I saw the city waking,

In Central Park at the crack of dawn,

The daisies began to yawn.

 

Last night I saw the city breathing,

Car engines respire,

Same as the church choir.

 

Last night I saw the city laughing,

Windows giggled so they cracked,

On a bus that was packed.

 

Last night I saw the city dancing,

The trees jived,

As the swimmer dived.

 

Last night I saw the city crying,

A whistle wailed,

And then inhaled.

 

Last night I saw the city sleeping,

Offices blinked into a nap,

While a drowsy man tried to stare at a map.
