The first one I have heard
Since I left Dakota prairies.

Brought back so many memories
Of childhood young and free.

There is a lark who is born to live in the meadow,
perched far above the smooth mountain stones.
She will rise from fields of the cloverleaf...

or simply be right twice a day
in order to sometimes please

Wild little brook in such a hurry
Lifting your face to the sun
Tumbling over the hours and days
Chatting along as you run
Hundreds of tiny glass...
Ode to My Daughter

Lying on my back watching vagabond clouds as I reminisce and dream!

sweetly symphonic slopes
green glistened gradient
hillside reeds rejoice flat
by philanthropic sun
showers ivory slates
of winter remembrance

tormented by a lonely ache.
meadowlark, family, nostalgia,
Born in the mid west, a long time ago
in the sunflower state where the prairie grass grows
she would spend many days, sharing stories and dreams

How many embrace the new day?
Instead of unwrapping what lies at their feet,
Dark memories paint a cliché
