“We are open
Brick and music at the
Heart of an emerald city


Step into the shelter of the
As a dove flies into its nest


Warm your spirit with 
Harmonica sun in the air 


No, you aren’t dreaming:
Snakes Alive! in bright colored suits
Cats playing tunes
Pigs can fly with red wings and 
Flower crowns too


You are welcome anytime
Farm and art to table
There is always a chair for you


This is your community
We are your diligent neighbors
We fear no unexpected rain
We innovate
We gather
We banish the worry with persistence
When you need us we are


Like any garden
We transform the rain into brighter blossom


We love you


As an iris and tulip bouquet


Now my dear
Let’s ring the bell
It’s time to Celebrate!”


-Passenger Poet (Audrey Kohler)
