About The Mayberry Poem - A Tribute to Mayberry:




The Mayberry Poem - A Tribute to Mayberry is a compilation of poetry about "The Andy Griffith Show" that celebrates the characters and the show that made millions of viewers laugh during the turbulent 60s as they watched the antics and friendships of the good people of Mayberry.

The book of poetry contains approx. 230 poems about Mayberry written by 68 different poets from 23 states and Washington, D.C. Each poem pays tribute to a character, episode, or theme from "The Andy Griffith Show" or simply honors the fictional town of Mayberry itself with its small-town values and simple "good ol' days" way of life. The poems range from humorous limericks to thought-provoking verses about the things that still make Mayberry resonate with viewers today. The book also features a collection of black and white photographs taken by Darden of Andy Griffith's real hometown, Mount Airy, North Carolina.
