Mississippi Is...

Mississippi Is…

Jeb Greene Grier, age 2

Great-grandson of Buddy and Cathy White of Philadelphia and Central Electric members

My mind wanders

To childhood days

And carefree ways.

Walking barefoot in

Newly plowed ground,

Wading in a cool, clear

Stream I have found.

Resisting in a field

of fragrant wildflowers

as a gentle breeze

brings a rush of showers.

The season changes to

Multicolored hues of fall

And I hear the wild geese call,

As I vision heavy dark clouds

And snow-laden boughs.
