Talk of the Town celebrates 100 poems
August 25, 2018
Yes, I've been thinking
I've had a little time
This is my 100th poem
About Carson City, our home
The one that's yours and mine
It's been a wonderful experience
Recommended Stories For You
I've gotten to meet you all
I've walked and talked
Laughed and hugged
I've tried to answer every call
Wanting to know more about you
You are special, that's for sure
Bringing your exclusive goods and services
Into our Carson City world
I began at the Governor's Mansion
With the Women's Historical "Pink Tea"
From there it was "Glen Eagles," "Paradise Salon,"
"Carson Coffee" and on to "Evergreen Genes"
I was off and running
"Gordon's Photography," "Attitude's Salon," "Greenhouse Garden Center"
I began to get around
Nevada Day was upon us with "The Spirit of Halloween"
Then "The Chamber of Commerce" followed by Christmas and "The Living Nativity"
From there to a New Year, with "Eagle Vision" to help you see
"Music Lessons Unlimited," "Alberto's Boot and Shoe Repair" and "Ogres-Holm Pottery"
There is one special business, "Fast Frame,"
They have supported me
They have matted all my poems
So I could give them to you free
You know where this is going
I can't possibly list you all
But, thank you, thank you, thank you
I have had a ball.
Please help me continue
If I haven't seen you yet
Just email me with your business
I'll give you a poem, you can bet
