Mississippi Is...

By Lynda O’Quinn

Where Highway 84 meets 61,
in a school at Washington,
A teacher made learning fun.

She made our little town sound great,
in 1812, we were capital of the state.

Jefferson College for the military bound,
is now a museum on Live Oak ground.

A Methodist church built in 1799,
still stands strong through time.

This teacher made it interesting to me,
with a love for Mississippi history.

Thank you, Washington, 6th-grade class.
Thank you, Ms. Pendergrass.
