A Dicksissel sings out a tune
Out over new prairie bloom
Such a delightful melody to hear
Spreading out on the prairie.
This got my mind wandering who I might find
Barges full of coal going through a lock on the Mississippi River
Lily worn out from a hard day of fishing and travel
On a cliff I listened to the wind
I heard a chant, perhaps a song
A warm feeling of happiness
Wove itself all around
And was shared across the land.
