North Side of Town

North Side of Town



                         Wind brushing treetops
                         sings a song of silence.

                         The stillness of morning
                         recalls its own meaning.

                         Remnants of prairie land
                         remember another life.

                         The final stretch of a city street
                         leads to a winding county road.

                         North of city limits
                         spreads a landscape

                         of towering silos
                         and aging barns.

                         Aging barns north of town
                         recall another time

                         while wind brushing treetops
                         sings a peaceful song.
