M is for Maine

I've lived in Arizona, Bahamas, and New York,
but I love living in Maine.

I love the ocean,

the trees,

the people,

and the way of life.

Don't tell anyone,
but I even love the snow.

Yes, I like to travel and
see other places,
but there's no place like
my HOME in Maine.

by Roger Vinton Snow


Grand State of Maine, proudly we sing
To tell your glories to the land
To shout your praises till the echoes ring
Should fate unkind send us to roam
The scent of the fragrant pines,
The tang of the salty sea will call us home.

Oh, Pine Tree State
Your woods, fields and hills
Your lakes, streams and rockbound coast
Will ever fill our hearts with thrills
And tho' we seek far and wide
Our search will be in vain
To find a fairer spot on earth
Than Maine! Maine! Maine!

Beautiful post, Vonnie. And I'll bet you appreciate Maine even more after being away. I know I'm the same about Michigan.

Sigh. Maine. Beautiful there but there's one drawback. WINTER. shiver. I'll be there one of these years...in the summer or fall, but NOT in the winter. LOL.

I've always wanted to visit Maine. I love where I live too much to want to move, but it seems like a lovely place to visit.
