Word Of Mouth

By Arlene Corwin

When Streisand first appeared in town,
Word went around, the local buzz
A telegraph: a chain reaction.
Word of mouth crossed New York City,
Gaining speed; the perfect path.
Singing her extraordinary
Repertoire,
A new voice incompar-able,
Impossible to liken
with the biggest star.
The street was lined,
All boroughs meeting in the Village.
North to South, the mouth
The best, most honest
Instrument
To share whatever art and drive
You have to give.

I love your poetry, nicely done.

Dear Joanne,
Looking at it again, I think it could use a bit of a rework - but it's ok. It says what it has to, so thank you very, very much.

Enjoyed very much!
Thank you

I wonder if I left something out at the end.
