New York Villanelle

Steel-bright shine Gotham's treasures, some profound,
while skills unnumbered bless this famous isle.
In shade of lofty towers fine works abound.

The planet's best, things most men deem profound,
are here. New York comes first for poise and style.
Steel-bright shine Gotham's treasures, some profound.

Achievements of the talented redound,
where powers of art and commerce reconcile.
In shade of lofty towers fine works abound.

At Av'ry Fisher, hear the Phil's rich sound,
let world-class shows on Broadway spark your smile.
Steel-bright shine Gotham's treasures, some profound.

The Frick's and Morgan's contents are renowned,
their prints, and oils, and documents beguile;
in shade of lofty towers fine works abound.

Grand buildings, tallest known to man, surround
the streets and avenues of this small isle.
Steel-bright shine Gotham's treasures, some profound.
In shade of lofty towers fine works abound.
