Michigan Is The Place For Me

Poem By Mary Nagy

This land has a place in my heart.
I've loved it here right from the start.
From the rivers and lakes
to the mounds of snowflakes,
this state and I never will part.

In the Summer the grass is so green.
Take a visit, you'll see what I mean.
It's so hot in the sun.
You will have so much fun
and you've never breathed air that's so clean.

After Summer we creep into Fall.
It's the prettiest season of all.
With the colors of trees
on display with such ease
you could frame it to hang on your wall.

Then comes Winter with mountains of snow.
You must dress warm wherever you go.
Wear your thickest of coats
while you sow your wild oats.
You will love it, just trust me, I know.

When the snow starts to melt into Spring
I'm amazed at the joy it can bring.
You'll see fresh tiny leaves
on the branches of trees
''I'm alive! '' you will just want to sing!

If you're looking for somewhere to go
that has sunshine as well as some snow,
it's a place I've adored
and you never get bored.
Michigan is the best place I know.

I had just wrote a poem about michigan so i did a search and came accross yours... well written! ! Love it! I'm going to add this to my favorites. **Hugz** CC
You should send this to the state's Economic Development Office. They are always trying to coax companies to jump across the borders from Illinois and Ohio. They would probably have good use for such a sweet pledge of wolverine love...
Funny, I'm going to Michigan on Monday. I'm going there for business purposes, really not looking forward to the trip. But after reading this, I'm kind of anxious to see what it's like. I hope I can see what you see. Shelia*
No fault insurance....brrrrrrrrrrrrrr
I can tell by the photos Mary that it looks a lovely place. It all sounds super to me. Derbyshire has The Peaks, which are very high hills and craggs but not quite mountain size. Very pretty though. Loved this poem very much indeed. Sincerely Ernestine
