Small Town America

Main Street in Virginia City, Montana (population 169).

Cherishing small towns

America’s gift

Community pride

Life never adrift


Welcoming Main Street

Absent traffic lights

Community hub

Unique stores excite


People greet with “hello”

Strangers become friends

Community loves

Caring’s dividends


Close-knit neighborhoods

Immaculate yards

Community joy

Beauty fills postcards


Town’s crowning jewel

School engages minds

Community guides

Students’ daily grind


White wood-framed churches

God’s daily footprint

Community prays

Town’s faithful blueprint


First Lutheran Church in Circle, Montana (population 591).

  1. Lovely poem with such truisms! We were in Virginia City at the ice cream shop with our friends last week. We walked the two blocks of Main Street (up one side and down the other), greeting strangers (friends we hadn’t met yet), and lingered five minutes too long – – – got caught in a hailstorm! Oh, what a downpour!!
