I just found, on my computer room floor, a scrap of poem by Archibald Rutledge, torn from a magazine by my mother heaven knows when. I dedicate it to Lordville -

"The Source" by Archibald Rutledge

I from hill country
A parable bring:
Deep in those woodlands sweet,
A hidden spring
Gives a wild mountain stream
Music to sing.

So you have given me
All my life long
Love from your wildwoods,
And strength to be strong,
Secret, mysterious
Source of my song!
