Knowing America through Poetry~by rldubour, in alpha order




The state bird is the Mockingbird
And the Diamond is this state’s gem.
The tree~~ the Ponderosa Pine
Thankful people~~ proud what’s been given them.

The flower is the Apple Blosso
The insect is the Honeybee.
Motto is “The People Rule” and
“Land of opportunity.”

Little River County Courthouse
Their Christmas lights display is great.
The fiddle is the instrument and
The square dance~~ number one it rates!

The Ozark National Forest
Has more than one million acres,
Almost ten thousand miles of streams
Six hundred thousand lakes it features.

From the Sioux Indians’ word acansa
This state’s name, means downstream place.
Often called the “Natural State”
Many resources to embrace.

Containing six National Park sites,
Two and a half million acres.
Fifty state parks, seven National
By-ways and everyone are takers.

Prospecting is still allowed in the
Crater of Diamond State Park.
For precious gems of diamonds
