The Love of Kansas Villages

The love of Kansas villages like Republic County,
Extends to one and all in times of joy and sorrow,
Giving to the poor from those rich with bounty,
For here we are at home to give and to borrow.
Not a metropolis, but one in spirit
Feeling one another’s pain binding us together,
For nothing can put out the candle that’s lit.
As we pass through life’s storms and weather.
For when one falls we unite in love,
Carrying each precious angel home above.
