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.

    When my wife and I first started dating 1 the first places I had to take her was the Art museum area along the river. She loved it. It is indeed one of the most beautiful areas and most over looked spots of the city.
