1877 that was the year
when Sheldon Smith settled down here
Equipped with the tools he held in his hands
he constructed his home in which Smith Coffee now stands
His craft was true and tools were trusty
his wrenched was prized albeit rusty
He reached for it once to tighten a bolt down
he realized he lost it while traveling through town
He and his family searched high and low
Mary and Amie wondered “where did it go?”
2019 Shel has lost it once more
and now it is time to continue the lore!
