(1955 / Montgomery, Alabama)

Smalltown Murals

A part of Americana
when you're living in a small town.
Remember local history
as murals decorate downtown.

Beautiful historic pieces of art,
like a Soda Fountain on a hot day,
highlight early Timber or Logging; or
see Hank and Audrey's wedding site today.

A salute to George Washington Carver
and the National Peanut Festival
or Desoto's journey through the Wiregrass...
See how King Cotton made Dothan special.

The Frog Capitol of the World welcomes
visitors to the tiny town of Rayne.
These smart, well dressed frogs have their dignity.
Hey, loving frogs does not make you insane.

When in Frankenmuth or downtown Helen
enjoy the Bavarian atmosphere.
Fudge making, logging or lederhosen...
See a little bit of Germany here.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Murals added a special touch on trips to the German Alps. And I've had the pleasure to see many in small towns on other vacations.

Poem of the Day

poet William Butler Yeats

WINE comes in at the mouth
And love comes in at the eye;

Before we grow old and die.
