A Town Called Cloud Chief - Poem by Marilyn Lott

They took their allotted land
Plowed and seeded the ground
Raised cattle, horses and families
These people were loyalty bound

Cloud Chief was the name of an Indian
And this town was named after him
Persistence and hard work it took
But that’s where it all began

Building fences for their animals
Scraping out a place to dwell
They started in the early sunrise
They came to know this land so well

I think it’s so amazing
How a town starts with a piece of ground
And through a hundred years and more
It’s amazing what folks have found

How hard they worked and persevered
To create a town beyond belief
So many now reap the benefits
In a town that’s called Cloud Chief!
