Nostalgia
Lynn Cohen

Watching “Midnight in Paris”
I suffer nostalgia:
live in my past;

you in times that never have been.

I travel back in your life;
remember another lover you found
years after she left
because she was too young
for the passion you wanted.

Wandering the Paris Pontes
I pass a miniature Statue of Liberty
see all join the banks of the Seine.

Paris in the rain
suits me well
I do not need a parapluie;
I just want another time:
The twenties of Eliot, Fitzgerald, Hemingway and Stein.


The Summer Gazebo Readings are held each Monday evening at 7pm in June, July & August. Each evening 4-5 authors and poets share their work from our Gazebo on Schoolhouse Green in Oceanside, NY. SGR is produced by the Kiwanis Club of Oceanside. Funds raised through sponsorships help send underprivileged kids to Kamp Kiwanis each summer. This summer marks our 7th season!
