Mississippi Is...

Mississippi is…

Clarcko State Park, south of Meridian.

The first cool sharp of fall in my head,

the breaking of bread

and the passing of stories.


That endearing candor of sweet old glories

and the fire of ardent youth.


All found in our gentle rain

from the Delta to the grain.


Our Mississippi is our truth.

by Dara Lane Davis,
a resident of Panama City, Florida
and Meridian
