A Kansas Song This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.


Kansas - Middle America -flat land,
boring, dull, hot.
Tornado swept Dorothy far away to abetter place.
Farms and cows and fences.

Outsiders proclaimKansas is just like that -
drab, colorless and dry.
Outlandersdon't know the meaning
of the Kansas I see.

Rolling hillscovered with green prairie grass
that meets an endless bluesky.
Summers are an infinite field of sunflowers -
a sea of goldensunrise.

Behold the wide-open spaces
that bring to mindcowboys who once roamed the spacious prairies.
Windmills and silosthat dot the landscape.
The sun illuminates the clouds after a summerstorm.

Kansas - Middle America - open prairies,
action-packed,exciting, ever changing.
Even Dorothy knew there was no place likehome.
Kansas.
