Poetry by Billy Joe Fudge: On learning the truth of that

On learning the truth of that: How Bliss got its name
By Billy Joe Fudge
Mike Watson, you're the "cat's meow" with this discovery
Of how Bliss got it's name.

I've for decades carried visions in my mind of pioneers
Who had labored in their travels from the East along creeks, rivers
And over mountains,
Then through rocky, wooded passes to finally stumble o'er Pettit's Fork Hill
To find Bliss in the shallow dell beyond.
But alas, my romantic imaginings waxed in error.
I find comfort in the truth and for that,
For that,
I thank you. - Billy Joe Fudge
