As the setting of one of my favourite movies, I thought it would be fun to introduce this wonderful city through the medium of verse, paying homage to the poem penned for the movie’s finale. Whilst no-where near a perfect example, it should give you a taste of what wonders await you if you can make time for a visit.
I LOVE the way you over-look
The waters of the Puget Sound
I LOVE the way Mount Rainier looms
For all to see from miles around.
I LOVE your retro Space Needle
And your awesome monorail.
I LOVE your bars like e-Smith Mercantile
I’ll miss your crafty ales.
I LOVE the way you love your food
I LOVE it at Pike Place
I LOVE Biscuit Bitch and Starbucks
Gobbled up without a trace.
I LOVED my trip to the Emerald City:
The seaplanes, the Seahawks and stacks of sockeye.
But mostly, Seattle, I LOVED your charm
And that I’ll miss, much more than a little bit: Time to say goodbye.
