A Poem by Edythe Peden Cascini

The Little Town in my Heart

The little town is quiet once more,

Old friends have all come and gone;

Our hearts were joined for a few brief hours

Together through love and song.

If you have never been from a little town

You may not quite understand

just what it is that draws us back

from cities all over the land.

What really counts, it seems to me,

is not just the size of the place

but the people who at some earlier time

all shared the very same space.

Yes, our little town is quiet now

and only memory plays a part;

it's all tucked away, ever safe and secure

that little town in my heart.
