ART & POETRY BY PAUL & KATHY BOECHER©
The small river cities that line the Mississippi River are so charming. They are nestled into the bluffs and overlook the mighty river. So many stories are held there. This painting was done in Stockholm, Wisconsin, a few years back.
Another time, another place, a world so far gone by,
Where streets were paved with cobblestones, under an azure sky,
Where people took the time to share a word or more with you,
Where moments pass without distress or without much ado.
A place that’s gone, but still exists in small towns everywhere,
Away from all the ugliness that meets us here and there,
To capture just a little time, to hold it in our hearts,
To dream our dreams with hope and love, before this life departs.
