Poems by Murray Poets and Poems About Murray County
C. R. Vance
In a little southern village
Where the atmosphere is good,
And fragrant flowers blossom
In the home of my childhood.
How picturesque and pretty
Are the scenes about the town,
With the mountains in the distance
and the rivulets winding ‘round.
‘Tis not a noisy, smoky city
Where men bustle, fret and worry
But just a quiet little hamlet
Is the County seat of Murray.
Though I may travel a thousand miles
My steps I must retrace,
If I would find the garden spot
For after all, ‘tis old Spring Place.
