Poem Written by Nila Stilwell & Tommy Horton

Written while on the Highland Maple Festival!!

 

To Monteray for the Day

 

Headed to the festival for the day

Time to run the Maple Syrup they say.

Up the road with a busload of Folks,

Enjoying the scenes and all the jokes.

Driver let us off for crafts at the school,

Saw a lot of things that were really cool.

We had just exactly enough time,

to buy a painting and pork rinds.

 

Leaving the town for the Sugar Shack,

just got a little bit off the track.

Headed up the mountain on "Seldom Scene",

filled with curves that were OH SO MEAN.

We've now run out on gravel road,

the name of this place we'll never know.

 

Bus driver will just up and stop,

lady from the back yells, stop light or what?

Driver says no, just checking to see,

if reverse is still working for me.

 

Just a few more miles and we'll see,

that the sugar shack is the place to be.

We had so much fun you'll never know,

Les' to the festival with us, you got to go.
