THE STATE HOSPITAL THREE
Springing from memory,
State Hospital Three–
Two doctor’s kids and me,
Making our way through academy…
We were the Hospital Three.
Brent and Taisa competed for
I was twenty-seventh of
A good showing for me!
Taisa next door and Brent on the Hill
We grew simaltaneously…
With other kids in the neighborhood,
We all walked to school or took the bus,
Sometimes got special transport…
In later years we each did our thing,
Paralleling the Street named “Court”.
Fortunately “The Hospital Three”
Are all three still around,
Each in a different part of this country…
But finding new common ground.
