A Poem About Onekama...

Onekama Song & Lyrics
Onekama, Onekama, the city on two shores, M-22 was made for you, you needn’t ask for more
It’s the place for fun and sand and sun and winter snow time runs
Onekama is the place to go, Artesian waters flow!
Grab your mother, grab your Pa: Head to Onekama!
1. At the start of old M-22 a two-lake town waits for you;
It’s also on Lakes Portage and Michigan where you can sun bathe, dive and swim.
Fish or sail or climb and hike, rent a ride on a two-wheel bike!
Grab some dinner, let’s do lunch; we’re bringing the whole bunch!
2. The Heritage Route to Leelenaw starts right in Onekama
Winding north along the dunes to watch the sunset and the moon.
Ride your car or drive your bike; There’even lots of trails to hike!
Just make sure to taste the wines; they’re not too hard to find.
3. Pierport, Frankfort, Arcadia; Crystal Lake, Benzonia,
Sleeping Bear and the Manitou, Glen Haven, Northport, Empire, too!
Peshawbestown, Lake Leelenaw, Suttons Bay, O-Omena.
They’re all along M-22 just waiting there for you.
So grab your mother, and your Pa and start at Onekama!
