Poem: Saint Marys Reservoir
And in its place
In its concrete grace
Is the new one — though oversized —
Let it know that it is prized
No more critics assigning blame
But let's give it a really righteous name:
SAINT MARYS RESERVOIR
A tribute to the original hospital, the patients, the Sisters, the dreaming
The pioneering and present day doctors and teams of healing colleagues, families and visitors streaming
And a tribute to the Mayos' gift to the city of the small but precious St. Mary's Park.
The reservoir a massive monument to history in daylight and in dark
An appropriate reminder, as you see
That the city always was a DMC.
