Poets’ Corner: O Little Tonganoxie Town

November 20, 2007

This week's poet is Laurence Hill of Tonganoxie.

O Little Tonganoxie Town

O little Tonganoxie Town,
How still we see thee lie!
All down your short and friendly streets,
Your folks walk smiling by.

O you of first-rate schooling proud,
Of lively library,
Of busy downtown district,
And Historic Society:

Good City staff make flow the
Water, taxes, trash and sewer.
Police, Council, sports, Firefighters are
Well-chronicled in the weekly "Mirror."

For such a compact country town
You are a big surprise,
Bigger and better in all these ways
Than imagined in a new guy's eyes.
