Glories Of The Prairie
Spikes of gay feathers upon a northern prairie bloom,
Waving April's name across the snowmelt of the land.
Above them flurries of snow geese fill the azure sky,
Quickening my winter's heart with their
Deep honking cry...
Golden fingers of sunshine melt the last patches of snow,
While beneath the thawing earth--the glories of the prairie
Continue to grow...
