Sidewalk towns,
Hand hammered stalls,
Dutch girl quilts, crochet
Home grown farm-filled jars,
Amateur artists, carvings.
Winterís work burst forth.

Hot dogs, lemonade, turkey legs,
Hand-strung beads and rings,
Angels of calico, lace, embroidered shirts,
Pots of color-glazen clay,
Products of inside days.

Wide straw floppy hats,
Silk flower bands,
Logo caps, cowboy brims,
Country fiddles whining,
Texas folk art springs to life,
In sidewalk towns.
