Galetta and Our little Community Hall 


Have you seen the Mississippi as the early morning calls

as the waters dance and cascade as they

head off down the falls?

our elegant little churches

as they nestle snug within

or the trucks turning in on Wednesdays

as our auction day begins?

thank goodness for the foresight

of folks who had the spark

to jack up the old timbers

and move them to Russell Park

they're melding here together

like a branch on the old tree

like a grandma rocking grandson

on a tired and weathered knee

is there something in this omen

of saving old and new

to harmonize together

and synchronize the two?

'blessed be the ties that bind' they say

and 'room enough for all'

send down this kind of spirit, Lord

to this Community Hall.
