POEM – “Sweet Little Town” by N. Elliott Noorlun (8/11/15)
Sweet little town, Where I first saw life,
As a farmer’s son, From his dear wife.
I saw SO much joy, And little strife,
In these memories sewn with love!!!
People’s faces, And their ways,
Graced my tender, Childhood days.
I’m grateful in, So many ways,
This town was sent from above!!!
Like Arnold Bauman, Who owned “The KEE”,
And brought such laughter, To kids like me,
With “Tarzan” and cartoons, Whilst I slapped my knee,
This town fit me like a glove!!!
Or on a Sunday morn, At the E.U.B.,
As the church bells rang, It seemed to me,
That God and His angels, Were filled with glee,
As we gathered to praise His “Dove”!!!
The soil near our village, So black and rich,
While glacial hills, In gentle pitch,
Are the home to these mem’ries, Of the kind hearts which,
Helped teach this farm boy about love!!!!
