The sun in the west slowly eases down
as evening settles quietly over the town.
Paper-boys on bicycles bring the news,
while old folks on porches sit and snooze.
Boys run and play along the sidewalk,
while girls play hopscotch with rainbow chalk.
Mother’s voices call small children home,
and dogs are barking at cats that roam.
Tired dads relax in front of the TV,
after working hard to provide for family.
Traffic on Main Street begins to slow;
street-lamps and porch lights start to glow.
As silence settles on the houses and lawns,
it seems as if the whole town yawns.
We appreciate life the traditional way,
still peacefully, in Home Town, USA.
