DAILY PHOTO: Garfield Park

Taken on August 16, 2018 in Chicago.

Fun Fact: This park was to be called Central Park until President James Garfield was assassinated. (Not so fun a fact for Garfield, but he did get a park named after him. Not the most illustrious of parks, but then again he wasn’t the most illustrious of Presidents. Ironically, Garfield Park has a very nice sculpture of Lincoln, a much more highly lauded President with a vastly more impressive Chicago Park.

POEM: Park from a Hotel Balcony

I see a canopy of trees.
Wind-rolled like undulating seas.
A strange green scene from my balcony.



Seems like such a vast expanse
of trees tossed, locked in a dance.
From sidewalk, they’re of stalwart stance.



But from here they are an ocean to me.
