The Land I Love

I’m going away on a sunny day

To Oregon, the land I love

I want to see the falls and hear their calls

They will bid me, “Move back! Come back to me!”

Her mountains and hills give me thrills

Here, all my friends are Places

We’ll be driving along, singing a song

Stopping to buy fresh berries

Where the Clackamas River lives, we’ll visit my relatives

And drink the snow-melt waters of Mt. Hood

Next on to the coast where we will boast

Of watching the sun sink into the ocean

Land, water, air – Here is nature so fair

In my homeland, motherland, sweet Oregon

I wrote this on the way to Oregon. The visit was nice but it’s not the same when there’s a time limit and a rushed feeling. I was glad to see that Oregon’s beauty has not diminished.
