On Broadway

About me young and careless feet
Linger along the garish street;
     Above, a hundred shouting signs
Shed down their bright fantastic glow
     Upon the merry crowd and lines
Of moving carriages below.
Oh wonderful is Broadway – only
My heart, my heart is lonely.

Desire naked, linked with Passion,
Goes strutting by in brazen fashion;
     From playhouse, cabaret and inn
The rainbow lights of Broadway blaze
     All gay without, all glad within;
As in a dream I stand and gaze
At Broadway, shining Broadway – only
My heart, my heart is lonely.
