I Fell in Love in These Ozark Hills

I fell in love in these Ozark hills
There on the waters of Lake Ann
Held close by its shores
I step out into her woods
To spend awhile
Treading upon her earth and sky
Wood fires are lit
All for the calling of farewell
To my autumn days
Silvery skies found in morning dew
Lake Ann’s deep waters so placid and still
Returning only to those who see
Every day she meets my eyes
Bangles and diamonds twinkle
Like stars over her lacy gown
She dances to gentle river flows
To music of the Sugar Creek Waltz
Content without ever knowing a stranger
My dear sweet day, my Lake Ann
Village voices held close by surrounding hills
Echoing back a deep breath
Surrounding me
Setting my spirit free
Giving me – my heart’s sky!
