First in Flight

To the editor:

North Carolina is oh so great!

So let me tell you about our state.

The great blue skies fill my eyes

with the beautiful birds in the sky.

From the little bees that pollinate the flowers,

to the exquisite animals you encounter.

North Carolina brings the Great Pee Dee River,

What great scenery North Carolina has to deliver.

From the mountains to the beach,

There aren’t many things far from reach.

North Carolina has good food too,

Lots of tasty barbecue.

And that is why it is so great to be born and

Raised in such a wonderful state.
