Adirondacks nestle the tiny town of Inlet.
All around it is a history
Of logging, hunting, boating, pioneering,
Settling, surviving and staying.
The lovely, quintessential mountain town,
With it’s grocery, ice cream stand,
Flowers and quaint shops,
Has no traffic lights, just courtesy.
New store signs signal some change,
An always controversial topic to folk.
Locals, summer people and tourists
All have their say, as chatter is a beloved sport.
Vacationers, campers, hikers, rafters,
Congregate up and down the main street,
For sunshine, serendipity and sustenance.
Inlet is musical with children’s laughter.
The delight in their faces refreshes the air,
And makes the old, new again.
Here, everybody knows everybody,
Even if they’ve never met.
