Cumberland - Poem by Edwin Robinette

Cumberland, Cumberland
Where have you gone my friend
For progress, you were rearranged
How I wish that you could mend

The silent trains no longer run
Your streets were ripped apart
Strange places fill old spaces
Someone tore out your heart

Friends have moved or passed away
There remain so very few
The stores once chic on main streets
Are now unknown and new

The town as I once knew it
Has lost that familiar touch
It's sad to say my Cumberland
Is gone........I miss it much
