Foster City

Written by: Niels Blomberg

It has been built beyond the last frontier
on salty marshland and on tidal streams
on visionary plans, on hopes and dreams
Here comes to rest the restless pioneer

The waves and wind inhabitants don’t fear
because the levee like a fortress seems
Although the water may rise to extremes
the stronghold by the bay will persevere

The city has the water in its veins
It flows for fish and man, past work and rest
In the Lagoon ends every waterway

And when it is the season for the rains
this landlocked sea is at is very best
and leads redundant water to the bay
