Poet's corner


city built upon a hill

I love you

in ways that

run like ribbons

through flesh and soul

I asked of you

for shelter


and friends for comfort

you gave

in abundance

out of God's own heart

the gifts that mark

your streets with greatness


my town

my joy

is in this community

that I call home

home a place of rest

may God bless you still
