The following poem was written by Hilda Lebedun and shared as part of the Memory Project.

This is Saint Louis, Missouri,
In the middle of September,
And we have an extension of summer!

The beautiful blue sky,
The brilliant rays of the sun
With few white clouds walking above.

Below, everything is still green.
Beautiful flowers,
Blooming in many hues,
And shrubs and big trees
Are joining the green parade.
Lovely sight!
How I rejoice in this!
