At the doorway of One Norway

Hear the linnet singing on Massachusetts Avenue! Look up, unbeliever, See the rosy breast. In the sunlight shining Atop a linden leafing Massachusetts Avenue Linnet has a nest! Hear the linnet singing! Applause, Symphony Hall ... Music for the winging Knows no wall. Ed. note: This is a one-time exception to our practice of leaving our address out of poem titles.
