Nashville

Nashville

your green and yellow hills

won my heart from the very

beginning

 

your tree-lined fence-lined

two-lane roads

and Southern pillars and porches

 

became home away from home

 

now your rock-faced

shoulders are mine,

with their summer vines, slick surfaces

after a rain

and icicles in winter

 

your blue skies and orange sunsets

are copies of the ones

in my favorite childhood

nursery rhyme book

 

Nashville

city-town of dreams

and dreamerswho believe in miracles

and magic when they arrive

with sweet expectations

and leave with something different

and more

 

as I will when the time is right

 

Nashville

where there’s always a rainbow when it rains

 

for now you have become my home
