Other homes were dotted about Full of good will and cheer; Of all the other homey things Of good neighbors living near. A Post Office too, was there With mail in every day-and A little church-kept guard on the hill Where we went to sing and pray. The hymns were chosen with care The voices sweet and true. Now we miss the little church And the folks who came there, too. This little town has changed a bit. Gone the church, the bridge, the mill; But the folks are just as fine as then In this quaint little town on the hill. ---By Tallulah A.
