KCT Thought of the Week, June 16, 2017

Long years ago near the lone oak tree

Was the ‘Swimmin’Hole’ where small boys came

Ere yet the winter had turned to spring,

Here, too, the ‘Eel Bridge,’ now but a name.


Stone’s oaks are waiting as green as when

Erect they stood ‘neath the July sun;

And whisper stories of Skipper Joe’s,

Real stories once told when day was done.”
