Welcome to Stratford

Though Washington, D.C. is loved by all
(A great metropolis, to speak the truth)
And though New York is fairer in the fall
Than any city witnessed in my youth,
Aye, even though we have with brightest eyes
Seen palaces and monuments sublime
In London, where the Eye is giant size
And Tower walls have have stood the test of time,
A city girl must towards all this remark
That every street begins to look the same:
The hotel, shopping center, city park,
and Starbucks dominate my visual frame.
But I have yet to find a sweeter haven
Than quaint and cozy Stratford-Upon-Avon.
