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.
