The Lambs of the Prairie

Some younger cousins were talking about old gravestones in a family cemetery and it reminded me of this post

PrairieChat

As a child my mother spoke gently of her family’s story and those that went before. She spoke of a special recollection of young children buried way too young on the plains of North Dakota. Her haunting stories spoke of the children buried beneath the plain white markers embossed with fading lambs representing their youth. The Prairie Rest Cemetery is solitary remembrance dedicated to the youngest lambs who died while establishing our statemany years ago.

The Lambs of the Prairie

– Clarence Holm

Beneath the broad Dakota blue
On a hilltop kissed with morning dew
Were the silent lambs on prairie old
Lying peacefully, a family’s tears consoled.

Soundless sentinels endlessly resting
Reverent callers gazes arresting.
Their fading faces don’t betray
Machine etched stones, long in decay.

An eternal place of gathering,
Sweet memories in stone are offering
Old stories lost and gone
Waiting together for their eternal dawn.

Diversions crippled damaged exposed.
No, it’s not! Yes, it is! Shiny bauble – did they follow that?
Look for the pollsters, they work in the night.
One blue, one red – I’ll take two, hope to sleep tonight…

The shade of those men
Rising from the battlefield
Quenching rage scorched thirst

Too late for the buglers call
Too soon for those that will mourn
