As the Sagafjord sailed from her pier
Skyscrapers caught the sunset.
The lady of liberty glowed green then gold.
Next to me on deck
a young actor from the ship’s cast
stood clenching his fist.
“I will star on Broadway,” he vowed.
“I WILL” The band played.
City lights beckoned,
luring like sultry sirens.
… NEW YORK
