Reminiscing of St Jacob’s
By David Smith August 8, 2012
The reminiscing of a trip, to St Jacob’s we went;
The horse-drawn cart, our time was well spent;
The market was huge
Cattle auction galore
The shops on main street, manufacturing in store;
People so friendly, the buzz around town
Once the stores closed, quietness around
Looking at St Jacob’s, a catalyst of activity
To bring back family values, that’s the productivity.
The making of corn brooms and glass blowing to see
Genuine appreciation, what people mean to me.
The Inn takes me back before my life-time
History in the making right at its prime
See the old mill and model railroads how it was
Get back to basics feelings start to buzz
And honky-tonk music on a banjo I did find
Added flavour to the street as tourists passed the time.
The reminiscing of a trip, a husband and wife gets close.
That is the value I admire the most.
