Dry Arch Poem

"Our Village"


When morning comes too early
And breakfast is a fuss
To keep them safe and smiling
Just leave your kids with us

If burdens are too many
And no one seems to care
Talk to any one of us
Its better when you share

Dry Arch is not a building
But a place for all to go
It’s our village made of people
Where each of us may grow
