WORKMEN

There's workmen building
A house on the site
Of the old HELIX HOTEL
That once stood next
Door to where I am now.

Marge Dunn told me about that
How one time when she was young
Her family could not make it
To their farm
Because of a snow storm
So they stayed there
Upon this place that's getting
A new house
Where the HELIX HOTEL once stood
I hope they built it good

As I see the spirit of
Young Marg flowing
In her 91 year old mind
Knowing
A night to be remembered
In her Spring while she's
Decembered
In Pendleton now
I'll always think of her somehow
My neighbor
Who would tell me the history
Of Helix Town
O how o how o how
I miss Ms. Marge
Around
These parts
To fill the hearts
Of all 'round here
All my life
I'll hold her dear.

Maybe, someday in heaven
When we rise
Above
Marge and I will meet
Again to talk of
Love of
Helix Town
Of workmen building
Some teachers a home
I love Marge
She talked to me
With her here
It was more like home.
