The Prairie Speaks
I am like a big, big city
full of life at rush hour –
underground, moles digging,
above, rabbits digging ditches,
ladybugs rushing home,
and sparkling flowers
and blazing stars
dancing like everyday
it’s Mardi Gras.
The program is funded by Missouri American Water and our partner the Missouri State Parks.
