    “The Lordly Hudson” [by Paul Goodman]
    “The Lordly Hudson”

    “Driver, what stream is it?” I asked, well knowing
    it was our lordly Hudson hardly flowing.
    “It is our lordly Hudson hardly flowing,”
    he said, under the green-grown cliffs.”

    Be still, heart! No one needs
    your passionate suffrage to select this glory,
    this is our lordly Hudson hardly flowing
    under the green-grown cliffs.

    “Driver, has this a peer in Europe or the East?”
    “No, no!” he said. Home! Home!
    Be quiet, heart! This is our lordly Hudson
    and has no peer in Europe or the east.

    This is our lordly Hudson hardly flowing
    under the green-grown cliffs
    and has no peer in Europe or the East.
    Be quiet, heart! Home! Home!

    – Paul Goodman

      How fantastic! I had not seen/heard this poem, I’m always fascinated when the tide comes in and slows the Hudson river so the surface looks like glass.
