West Virginia

West Virginia

Nestled quietly in Appalachian hills,

surrounded by bigger and noisier brothers,

she exists quietly,

content letting the crazy world pass by.

Her aged wrinkles

protect her flock tenderly,

always watchful,

sheltering still hollows.

She is proud, loyal, majestic, and true -

but only locals know this.

She is the land of

coal miners,



and dreamers.

She is home to babbling brooks and raging rivers.

She bursts with colors of every description 

and settles into sleep more peaceably than her siblings.

Of the many places I have stepped,

my home lies in

wild, wonderful West Virginia.
