Ode to Wisconsin

Ode to Wisconsin

The husband and I had finally graduated. 
Newly married and all highly edumacated. 

When looking for jobs we searched far and near
"How bout Wisconsin?" he said.
Of course! Because Beer. 

We moved right in. Said we'd give it a year.
And then fell in love. 
Again. Because Beer.

And now here we are a full 8 years later
Preparing to move further from the equator. 

Moving away makes us reminisce
About all of the wonderful things we will miss. 

A run to the farmers market can be pretty neat
As long as you're jamming with Piccolo Pete. 

And why are we moving away from a nest
That has Beer, Bacon and cheese in one giant fest?

Speaking of beer Wisconsin's got an assort 
With thousands to choose from (New Glarus please export!) 

And how could I not mention the red and the white?
Game days at Camp Randall are quite a delight. 

And then there's the people. They're often quite colorful
Their kindness and humor are stupendously wonderful 

Wisconsin has become a part of our make
We're lucky to have such great memories to take. 

A big giant thank you to the great cheese state
We'd love to stay longer but our families await.
