Dripping Wells
& Winery sales.

Rivers, lakes
& bar-b-que steaks.

Old dance halls,
Lone Star calls.

A cruise with views.
A float under oaks.

Distant guitars . . .
& a walk under stars.

Dreams to soar
& Much to explore.

The hikes &trails,
The history tales.

Wildflowers appear
A short time a year.

Lone Star feels–
In these hills.

To live or visit,
Stays in spirit.
