A Centennial Party


The Centennial Historical Theater was here
And what a grand time we all had
The folks from Spanish Cove joined in
And you know, their acting wasn’t too bad

The drama unfolded right before our eyes
It was an interesting and entertaining play
It told how the German’s settled in Oklahoma
How they loved it and decided to stay

It was certainly a lesson for all of us
I’m sure it is in the history books
It was like that book was opened wide
And inside was a rare and wonderful look

Perhaps we’ll get to see them again
These talented actors from the theatre
It was the very exciting and informative to see
They certainly had an artistic creator!

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Where sunless rivers weep
Their waves into the deep,
She sleeps a charmed sleep:
Awake her not.
Led by a single star,
She came from very far
