Cloud Chief - Poem by Marilyn Lott

Early photos tell so much
About how a town began
Folks took on the challenges
Like discovering a new land

And that’s how it was in Cloud Chief
They staked out claims to homestead
Scraping out a place to live
A place to lay their heads

A horse and plow was all they had
To build homes and a few stores
Can you imagine how difficult it was?
Homes sometimes had no floors

Indians had settled first
And then the general population
Folks wanted to settle down
Create a new generation

That’s what they did in Cloud Chief
It was an exciting time for growth
As people took a chance
And officials took an oath

It’s interesting to look at pictures
From a hundred years and more
Compare how towns look today
And what they looked like before!
