One small change today
One gift of time
One contribution to a cause
One life-lesson contemplated
One old idea reconsidered
One step toward wisdom
won each day.

Over there are rides and such,

but here are the barns and displays.

4-H sheep, goats, rabbits, and cows

The spinners and weavers.


Prizes for craftwork.

Mini-doughnuts and fresh squeezed lemonade.

Local talent on stage: kids dancing,

dreamers singing.

We stand at our assigned gate, and stamp arms

so folks can get back in later.

You don’t talk to me

I don’t talk to you.

That’s fair.
