State Street, Portland, ca. 1880 / Maine Historical Society

STRANGE TO ME NOW ARE THE FORMS I MEET
WHEN I VISIT THE DEAR OLD TOWN;
BUT THE NATIVE AIR IS PURE AND SWEET,
AND THE TREES THAT O'ERSHADOW EACH WELL-KNOWN STREET,
AS THEY BALANCE UP AND DOWN,
ARE SINGING THE BEAUTIFUL SONG,
ARE SIGHING AND WHISPERING STILL
