The Caring Community of Coker Creek

What a wonderful way Coker Creek has
Of pulling together during any crisis.
There isn't one detail that these good people miss.

From the volunteer first responders,
To the preachers who are always on call,
To the neighbors who take care of the daily needs, one and all.

If there are hungry mouths, they feed them;
If there's a mess, the cleaning's done.
This little mountain town always pulls together as one.

How fortunate the family or the widow much aggrieved.
The call in the community brings all to the door;
When handling losses like house fires and deaths, who could ask for more?

  1. Well said in prose the feelings of the small communities. Where families and friends have interacted for years, the whole seems like family.

    Very good, this one.
