Summary A collection of poems that capture various aspects of life in the city. Library of Congress Summary. A collection of poems that capture various aspects of life in the city. Annotation. Lilian Moore had a lifetime of experience as an author of books for young readers-and a particular expertise for observing and celebrating life from a child's point of view. In this collection, seventeen poems speak to the joys and everyday wonders of city living, including the hush of a snowy morning, the grandeur of skyscrapers and bridges, the phantom faces reflected in store windows, and the transforming effects of a neighborhood mural painted "on the blank, unwindowed wall" by someone "dreaming to the slap of a wet brush."
