BALTIMORE IS BEST SENIOR CITIZEN POETRY CONTEST


1985


by,


RUTH GARBIS (nee: Rochkind)



“I LOVE BALTIMORE”


I love Baltimore

I love its streets, its parks

Its rainy afternoons

When I curl up with that good book from my beloved Pratt

I love its markets

Where the seafood beckons

And its delightful vegetables delight my eye

Where the “arabs” wander

And their calls remind me of my childhood

I love the old brick buildings

With their rounded doorways

I love the past keeping up with the new

But most of all I love the feeling

That this city is my birthplace

And all my memories are part of its history.
