Those Oklahoma Hills - Poem by Marilyn Lott

It was 100 years ago now
When Oklahoma became a state
Folks gathered all together
So they could celebrate

They wore the clothes to show
What people wore back then
Made you feel like you were there
It was truly a wonderful blend

The music, ah, the old style
Playin’ their fiddles and guitars
By the campfire into the night
Under the twinkle of Oklahoma stars

Folks telling stories of long ago
Makes you want to smile
But also about the difficult times
So fun to shoot the breeze for awhile

Oklahoma landscape is always
The place to get your thrills
Maybe someday you can visit
Those wonderful Oklahoma hills!
