Ode to Wildwood by Garland Bohn

Step into the world of Wildwood Senior Living as we celebrate the poetic prowess of one of our esteemed residents, Ode to Wildwood by Garland Bohn. Join us in exploring the essence of Wildwood through the eyes of our talented resident, whose words capture the heart and soul of our haven.

Ode to Wildwood: 
there is a haven
for the leisure we’re a cravin’ -
the kind-a-place you pray for,
thought you know you’ll have to pay for -
it’s called Wildwood

nothing could be finer
than to sit in my recliner -
I really am adaptin’
especially when I’m nappin’
here at Wildwood

the food is quite delicious
we don’t have to do the dishes
the workers are gracious
here at Wildwood

the grass can keep a-growin’
we don’t have to do the mowin’
if things don’t work as we intend it
someone else is going to mend it
here at Wildwood

when our emotions start to sour
we can go to Happy Hour
there’s nobody to abuse us -
music, food and song will soothe us
here at Wildwood

by Garland Bohn
