There for just one day
Delightful star of prairie
Blooms on summer stage

A Prairie Rose

Live life like a prairie rose,
Thriving in the roadside stones.
Cast away in your own paradise,
Fighting countless unknowns.

Sharing your beauty and splendor
With whatever happens along.
A solo act in nature,
Like a descant in a song.

How brief your role in nature,
Spectacular in our sight.
You’re just one part of creation,
Outstanding in the light.

           -Clarence Holm

Left Unseen

The wind wailed across the prairie
Giving voice to a darkened sky
Calling to those that seem unwary
Pay more attention to its cry.

Watch the clouds that sail in air
And move from dawn to dark.
Grey mists that shade lights glare
And travel heavens graceful arc.

Feel the earth men glorify
And run through fields of green
Where skies are blue and birds still fly
So much is left unseen.

 

Ormsby – A place to be
