Across From the Hudson River | A Poem by Guanyi Lin (Sandy)

My old dreams used to lie
Across from the Hudson River,
Uncharted Island and solid kingdom
Decorated with witty lies
And so my old dreams floated,
Underneath the Hudson River

My old self used to live
Across from the Statue of Liberty
Seagulls flap and torch shines
Like an exotic, mysterious calling from nowhere
And so my old self was imprisoned
Wanted unattainable freedom
Forever and ever

Across from the Hudson River
Across from the Statue of Liberty
Lay my old dreams and unwaking soul
And so on the Brooklyn Bridge
Echoed an elegy
Wailing over the old broken hearts
Forever and ever.
