Around the corner I have a friend, In this great city that has no end, Yet the days go by and weeks rush on, And before I know it, a year is gone. And I never see my old friends face, For life is a swift and terrible race, He knows I like him just as well, As in the days when I rang his bell. - Poem by -Charles Hanson Towne (1877-1949). Face by: Michelangelo - Giuliano de Medici.
