For Poets United Poetry Pantry # 195 ~ My Pine Scented Home Town,

My  Pine  Scented Home Town,

          The last five miles are
           winding winding ways,
As the bus turns the corners,
I remember the winter days,
Home, home on the range
Reflecting autumnal grace,
Before you know, its  
Behold ! the town itself, reveals,
At its own, the evergreen stature,
          The Spiritual Presence of Nature
Majestic melodious mountains,
Blow the Highlanders March,
of The Hundred Pipers.
As early as cool February
As fresh as is the month of May
When Spring awakes
and apple blossoms call,
Soft snowflakes greet you,
Sinking and vanishing, as they fall;
Serenity intense, beauteous nature
 crisp and pure
White and sure;
Oh! Let me feast my eyes 
On the beauty of my town,
Breathe in the sweet smell of pine,
Oh! Let me live the truthful moments
While they are there
And let the freshness creep into my soul;
