The Warbler of Verrazano (A Poem)

A lone warbler sings

despite the drone of cars

across a span of steel;

he sings from his on wild

patch of bramble laying

his claim ages before

the coming of Giovanni

da Verrazano from Italy

to a very wild North America.

Verrazano Bridge

Was his bridge was named after an Italian explorer?

      The warbler will always sing, even if the man made structures force him to be there. This was a beautiful work!
