This is my city,
Standing where the high plains meet the low
Standing as a "no man's land" between the three
o'clock hurly-burly of Chicago
And the three o'clock emptiness of San Antonio,
But she holds her head up proudly,
For she is a queen crowned with myriad lights
And myriad stars.
She is a debutante whose coming-out party
ls still a topic of American conversation.
True, she is a city of white towers, but
Her feet are firmly planted in the warm, brown
And you can walk her streets to their limits and say,
"Now this was an independent town once,
This was Cedar Springs, or Three Forks or Hord's
West of the Trinity the prairie begins,
Just little patches of mesquite at first
And then the plains alone,
But here on the west bank there are oak trees,
Here the soil is fertile and birds sing in this shade.
Among these little hills which Fourier never saw
A people came to live, from Paris and Orleans and
And still you find their names on rural mail boxes,
And still their children build upon this land.
Perhaps that wailing wind is not a wind,
But the singing and the sighing of Louise Dussau,
Who was woo'd with the aid of an English-French
What about the roily old river, the muddy Trinity?
ln late summer there are dry cracks gaping at her
But in the spring she overflows those banks
And goes travelling outward to the restraining
Oh, you can't say she's an ugly river,
The bridges and viaducts save her from that.
You should drive from the west into my city
On a misty winter day when the viaduct lights
Reach out and touch each other in the gloom,
And the clouds reflect the colored beacons of
When the Sally Haynes floated up our river
There were only bonfires and small groups of
people to welcome her,
And the steamboat's crew could hear but voices
Calling out from the bank.
Our river is the same old unpredictable river
The willows along her banks still turn pink then
In the spring
And the sun still shines down on kinky, black heads
As darky families fish in the muddy waters.
There upon the courthouse steps the old men sit,
Here upon the lawn John Neely Bryan's cabin
Where Margaret Beeman and her husband made
And on these foundations was built this city.
Blithe Pegasus a glittering landmark is,
Ever pacing the skies above us,
General Lee and Traveller charge on despite
defeat and desolation,
Brave men and true stand here a goodly company,
Travis, Houston, Crockett, Austin, Bowie, standing
in a row
Looking down on newer times and newer wars and
Hostess to a million guests each year my lady is,
Always she has a bright smile and warm hand-
clasp for those,
But as necessity arises, she arises, too,
And with the wisdom of Athena, the courage of
St. .loan and
The fire of Sif, plunges into battle.
She is as beautiful carrying a flag as a gem-
And she has flown a multitude of flags in her day,
Even as other cities of Texas have.
Today patriarchal fathers of Dallas sit along with
"Why, I remember when I lived near here as a
Back in '57 it was, and buffalo hides were still
being sold on Main Street."
But now, what about now? This century flower has
Dallas is no longer a child or a gangling half-
grown school girl,
She is a woman of poise and grace that comes
only with years,
She carries her dignity well, but in Spring she
And twines redbuds in her golden hair.
