Cincinnati


Cincinnati

No matter where I roam,

What ports of call I’ve seen,

I think tenderly of home:

Cincinnati of the Seven Hills – my Queen!

When the sun sets on the Ohio,

the city lumens in the rose and violet glow

of fog off of the river and factory smoke:

Cincinnati of the River -my Queen!

From the Serpentine gates at river’s banks

to girdling hive of freeways on her flanks,

this American Bohemia never lays her head to rest:

Cincinnati of the People – my Queen!
