ART & POETRY BY PAUL & KATHY BOECHER©
This aging bulwark stands as a reminder of days gone by.
Firmly grounded more than a hundred years ago, in the heartland of our country.
Each brick and stone, each hewn log was placed by strong, burly hands that knew no other way to work.
Vestiges of a different time – an edifice with heart built in,
All attributes which have caved over the years.
Where is our strength?
Where is our resolve?
How quickly can we be set ajar by the sands of time?
The stubbornness of man has been his strength and his downfall.
Praise the Creator of all, for setting things straight again.
