My Love Note
Dear Schuylkill Banks,
You have everything I so desire. Riding my bike down Kelly Drive, I arrive at your side with glimpses of center city, the river, and the Art Museum. It’s busy but peaceful. I can go fast on my bike, and seek stillness on your benches. You support my family, while my grandson and I fish on your banks, and my daughter and I walk your trails. You were initially jealous when I brought my boyfriend here, but readily opened your arms to love. Your ground supports me and your beauty uplifts me.
We are so perfect together.
