Denver County Fair - Poetry Contest  

It's a beautiful day in this neighborhood,

A beautiful day for a neighbor. . .

Would you be mine?Since we're together we might as well say:

Could you be mine?

Won't you be my neighbor?

Won't you please,

Won't you please?

Please won't you be my neighbor?

 

Won’t You Be My Neighbor

— Fred M. Rogers
