Community Spirit - Poem by David Harris

I can remember a time
when the neighbourhood bond was strong.
When you could chat to one another
over the fence about everything going on.
Resolving the problems that others had,
and helping them to get through.
Those days are in the past.
Oh, where have they gone?
The community spirit of long, long ago.

    They're still there, David. Only now, people come together to help each other only in times of an emergency effecting all. But, I wish the 'neighborhood' spirit would be 24/7 too! xxElysabeth (Report)Reply
