Dakota Aloha

Grass Path

Dakota Aloha

By David De Jong

Tall grass rolling in the wind,
Like ocean swells progressing in.
Emerald, jade, olive, lime,
Waves of green chanting in time.
Prairie schooners long since past,
Wheel ruts, still showing their last.
Simple sunrise greets the day,
Dakota morn, summer day.

Oriole, Goldfinch, Cardinal sing,
Lamps of color taking wing.
Each calls their love, all to hear
Enchanting songs, fill my ear.
Setting sun reseeds its light.
Night falls, fireflies take flight.
Simple sunset ends the day,
Dakota eve, summer day.
