A Litlle Of Dis And Dat

              Messages just about anything

Fluttering on a gentle prairie breeze

Spreading happiness and harmony.

Old badger looked out it's den
And with a special look said to me
Watch out if you get close
Otherwise I will let you be.
I'm still watching you

Effigy Mounds National Monument is in NE Iowa along the Mississippi River. is amazing artwork done with soil.The mounds preserved here are considered sacred by many Native Americans, especially the Monument's 20 culturally associated American Indian tribes. A visit offers opportunities to contemplate the meanings of the mounds and the people who built them. The 200 plus American Indian mounds are located in one of the most picturesque sections of the Upper Mississippi River Valley.

Thoughts Of Tranquility

How could I ever forget

The gentle moments

We have spent

On the prairie

Looking at the moon

And stars realizing

Where we should really be.

Let me make it plain to say

How much I love you

Each and every day

Let me tell you a secret

What kind of secret you say

You are the most beautiful

Ladies in the world

And just knowing you

I realize how well

Everything is going my way.
