More Musical Memories

Monday morning subway tunnel 
a bare foot man  tattered blanket on his back
lifts his arms in song

July 4th ’76
Independence Park Ironbound NJ
Sparks from the last fireworks drift down
The stage lights dim….
Neighbors from many lands join hands
and sing
My country ’tis of thee…

age 15 or so
I woke from a sullen nap to hear
Dvorak’s Ninth
Goin’ home, goin’home
