Please enjoy this limerick by Richard Perkins, a friend and long-term resident of Ogunquit. A few random photos follow.
An Ogunquit Limerick
Who would have “thunkit”
To name a village Ogunquit!
Perhaps an Indian in full dress
That would be my random guess!
The Indians arrived via canoe
Excitedly yelling “yahoo”
Spending wampum on a drunken spree
In a beautiful place by the sea!
They pitched a tent on the top of a dune
With lots of firewater bayed at the moon!
They set the standard for this village in Maine
The criterion being slightly eccentric but sane!
The tourists arrived causing the Indians unrest
They canoed up the Josias to Agamenticus!
Ogunquit is exciting and never humdrum
But to live here it takes a lot of wampum!
Thanks to the Abenaki’s that paddled ashore
So that we could live here for evermore!
