Claire Bobrycki
Poet
Driving north on I-81, you get to that hilly country around Lafayette. You reach the crest of a hill, and then you see, at night, the lights of Syracuse. It’s lovely, especially after a long journey—really lit up. I feel like Dorothy finally getting to Emerald City.

You know, it’s a local pastime to grouse about Syracuse—the weather, etc. But a lot of people I’ve heard say they like this homecoming view of the city. Every time I drive that stretch at night, I have the same feeling: Yeah, I live here, this is my city and I’m glad to be home.

Long drive, weary eyes—
Cityscape lights the night sky
Syracuse, I'm home!
