Downtown Goes Uptown
By David Smith February 26, 2010
“Neither the chill of recession, “nor the sidewalks with the snow;
Downtown the falls, has a wonderful healthy glow.
Mordechai dressed in formal attire with a fantastic smile
Can keep the hope fires burning;
He’s been around a while.
The perception of this downtown core;
The arts have made it real;
People make the difference, with imagination and appeal.
Everything fits together; cosmetic surgery on its way;
Infrastructure improvements; a re-engineering eastern gateway;
It’s the change in attitude
Where hopes and dreams are fulfilled.
Artists become impressive
In the falls, the atmosphere is filled.
We are much more, than the falls, with its thunderous roar;
People, with hopes and dreams
And love they want to pour.
And the Legend of Queen Street;
His picture looks so grand.
The falls, the fountain of youth;
Perception where we stand.
