Nestled in the Valley,
about to bloom,
’Tis a hustling little hamlet that’s
asking us for room.
We gladly grant the favor, for we see
it is but just
For it’s pushing to the forefront while
neighbors go to rust.
It’s men are full of business, faithful,
brave and free,
It’s women famed for beauty which
pleaseth you and me.
For the smile of lovely women when
she’s noble, good and true
Doth often make a city, and it makes
the county, too.
So we wish you all prosperity and
With you rejoice
And dub this budding rosebud the City of Old Boyce.
—A poem printed in the Clarke Courier at the time of Boyce’s incorporation.
