Knotty, soft, yet rough,

it grows tall and lean

across the prairie all spring

and all summer.

___________________________

It reaches for the sky,

and the children, the dogs,

the cattle, and the Namesake

roll in it, quietly.

___________________________

Winter takes it away

with a quick coat of white,

only to melt away with new spring,

vanishing as it came.

___________________________

And again, it reaches

to the sky, providing

a way of life for those

who know it.
