Cotati 
Is
simply 
simplicity profound. 

A lost in time 
picturesque throwback town.

Call it 
a painting; a mural
a marvel Norman Rockwell, 
would brush, 
and 
be proud  -

It’s 
Pacific Coast, Seaweed Toast,
Organic Roast
Vegan Pie, and Sweet Potato Fries -

Cotati 
Is
simply 
simplicity profound  -

It’s 
Rice Bowls, Fishing holes, Tadpoles,
Barefoot folks, 
Old stagecoach, Train Depots, 
Cypress trees, Tie-Dye Tees -

It’s Cotati 

Where winter feels like 
Spring!   

It’s 
Daffodils, Honey Bees, Lily Ponds, 
and Sunbeams,......

April flowers 
Intermittent showers -

Everywhere, 
wild grass is green;

Chicks chirping 
Frogs jumping 
Folks set'n on porch swings -

Birds singing
Grasshoppers leaping;
Swimmers surfing 

It's Cotati;

Kites flying 
Fish frying -

Church bells ringing
Old folks walking 
Children playing 
Horses dancing 

And
Box cars moving slow
to the old depot -

Beauty
is this town
on the west coast.

Cotati
is
Simply 
simplicity profound
