Oklahoma Proud

I know of a place where the rivers run deep
And the hearts of many find a prairie to sleep
Here I pray for the wind's harmonious voice
To which the golden wheat dances without a choice
From happiness the spirits of our ancestors cry
For the abundant life and a hawk in the sky
The tribes of man, diversity great
Joined their hearts in the Sooner state
Centuries later, our bonds remain
Oklahoma proud, forever and again

    My grandmother was from Oklahoma and my Dad was born there. Unfortunately I've never been. I enjoyed reading your poem. Nice work. Love, Kim
