"The Festival"

The Festival, has come and gone,
With the happy children's cheer's.
The Festival, has come and gone,
It comes but once a year.
The Festival, has come and gone,
And with it, all the games.
The Festival, has come and gone,
Our Town don't seem the same.
The Festival, has come and gone,
With Queen's, and all the Bands.
The Festival, has come and gone,
It really was Quite Grand!!
The Festival, has come and gone,
With all it's crowds and cheer's,
The Festival, has come and gone,
And it comes but once a year!!

"What Will The Day Bring"

What wll the day bring?
What will it hold?
Will it a strange, new problem unfold?
Will it be tranquil and easy to live?
Or will it take from you, all you can give?
Will you be able to give it your best,
By tackling the day, with vigor and zest?
Or will you sit back and say "Well, I tried,
But it's hard, nothing seems to be on my side."
Or will you be able to smile and say,
"I'm Thankful to be Here, to try This New Day."

E.H. Coe 1972

This is a poem that Dad wrote about the "Fairfield County Fair" It is the last Fair in Ohio. The Fair runs from Oct. 6th. thru Oct 12th. 2002!! Mom and Dad would work in the "Millersport Athletic Booster's Pancake Booth", to help make money for the School. They really enjoyed working there And, they also enjoyed watching and listening to all the Bands play!! Mom and Dad had Four Grandchildren who played in the Band at different times,Cammy, Shannon, Ben and Matt!!
"County Fair"

The County Fair, the County Fair,
The sound of it is in the air.
The horses prance, as music plays,
There's action on the gay mid-way.
The hustle-bustle of the crowd,
And high school bands, marching proud.
The sound of all this in the air,
The County Fair, the County Fair.
Exhibits great, in all the halls,
Sleek cattle, horses, in their stalls.
The Harness racing, what a thrill,
The stunt men giving all a chill.
These sights and sounds are in the air,
The County Fair, the County Fair!
