SHADOW STREET JAZZ


streets of Harlem

walked around
with a letter in my hand
wish you blue moon night

long years passed
since you ‘d gone
to the other side
but the feeling
always stayed near

lonely trumpet blows
misty tunes through thin air street
come dance cheek to cheek

in front of my house
bottle of beer at my side
as young girls pass by
I touch your shadow
drinking my dreams home
