Come to the old town of Murfeesboro

Country living with a Southern flair

Sweet tea and fried green tomatoes

Give the charming lilt a try if you dare

~*~

People of all races fill the streets

Chattering and shopping all carefree

Joyful children reveling in the Summer fun

Small town life is all that you see

~*~

Come to the old town of Murfeesboro

Country living with a Southern flair

Sweet tea and fried green tomatoes

Give the charming lilt a try if you dare

~*~

Dams and lakes are found everywhere

Boating, swimming and jet skis abound

Smiling souls and friendly faces

This is the best town you’ve ever found

~*~

Come to the old town of Murfeesboro

Country living with a Southern flair

Sweet tea and fried green tomatoes

Give the charming lilt a try if you dare

I have been writing all my life but for the most part, it has been a secret. My parents did not believe writing was a good way to earn money so I hid my poems. Then one day, I wanted to comment on an essay that a friend had written and found myself with a blog. That quiet whisper inside said, "You can write your poetry and no one will ever know.". I knew nothing of followers and the like at that time. So, here I am trying to learn my craft and enjoying every moment of it. My personal details are, I'm 57, married for 39 years, have one grown son who is God's gift to us and last but not least at all, I'm a Baha'i which basically means that I love all humanity.
