Endless summer, cloudless blue sky, wheat fields, shoulder high, wave forever.



                                                           A Prairie Boy's Summer



                                       Endless summer,
                                       cloudless blue sky,
                                       fields of golden wheat,
                                       shoulder high,
                                       wave forever.

                                       Grasshoppers,
                                       like helicopters,
                                       make a rasping sound
                                       leaping and landing
                                       everywhere.

                                       The only music
                                       to disturb the peace
                                       of the open prairie
                                       is the chorus
                                       of crickets and tree frogs.

                                       A boy and his dog,
                                       his bow and arrows,
                                       head for the horizon --
                                       an elusive destination.
                                       Many adventures possible
                                       along the meandering way.

                                       A boarded up farm house
                                       smelling moldy and damp.
                                       Stories told by objects
                                       left behind, but, why?
                                       Had owners intended to return?
                                       What changed their minds?
                                       Are they still here?
