Small towns and islands…

Filed under: Ramblings — Jocko @ 1:42 pm

The following poem was originally written about small towns, but I think it is relevant to a small island community as well:

Islands are an attitude
Toward helping one another.
Where each person finds special joy
In making glad the other.

An island thrives on kindly words
And kindly deeds to share.
The essence of each day is this
Capacity to care.

Yes, islands are an attitude
Toward loving simple things.
Like quilting bees and church bazaars,
And Christmas carollings.

A island thrives on parades
And programs in the park.
With picnics and school affairs
And bonfires after dark.

The attitude is one of peace
From deeply thankful hearts,
Who saw the deeds that must be done
And gladly did their part.
