A quiet, peaceful pocket in this town,
Small bungalows line narrow streets
Each and every house here looks unique
A neighborhood walk here is a treat!
An early morning stroll around the block
Past the community garden, then left on Denton
Behind a fence a dog starts barking
Near the round-about, on Benton.
A kaleidoscope of flowers in bloom
Ongoing draught encouraged planting natives
Under shade trees Naked Ladies dressed in pink
No lawnmowers needed here for the creative!
A lady starts chatting over her morning glory fence
Perched high on a wire the mockingbird sings
At the top of every hour a song floats through the air
It always follows right after the church bell rings.
Once back at the house again, relaxing on the deck
My freshly brewed café in hand
Fragrant lemon blossoms scent the air,
Rustling leaves, singing birds: It’s nature’s own Big Band!
