Hastings County


Do you know I’m painting this

Or am I just another passing through

Heading to or coming from

Doesn’t matter much to you


North shore from my childhood

Ice water in your veins

Like a child through a window

Hoping you will take the reins


The hills can’t decide

Just who their father is

As I drive down Dutch Girl Road

Hastings County melts into the spring


Blue sky and the lakes stick out their chest

Winter trees crane their necks to see

Bridges, fields and churches

And country road debris
