My State Hospital memories,

Includes a display in the trees…

Containing the bell

That once pealed

Calling the farm workers to beans.


It stood in a roofed display

From Garvin to Main, part-way.

It hadn’t pealed

Bringing work in from fields

Since the farm went away!

The little enclosure squeezed

Along the path, up through arching trees…

The trees are all gone,

Not much left but lawn

I hope they’ve preserved it…PLEASE?
