I can almost image THEN,

When the plains I love for the fact

That I can look straight across em –

And for their Sunsets, where

At due West,

Scatter plotted trees

And intertwining creeks

Meet the Sky 

At the Horizon Line –

In scattered clouds stretched thin, 

It’s easy to see

The whole World Spin – 

Starkly Turning

Against the Wind –

Back THEN,

At Glacier’s End,

Ide’of had to hike

To that High Spot

Between the Prongs 

Of Indian Creek,

To see over the Canopy

Of Sugar Leaves – 

It’s said once covered these

Tipton Till Plains ~
