Days Gone By: A Tribute to Texas

October 7, 2007
By Anonymous

Dust clinging to skin, shaken sand out of hair

Arid landscape swept over by a painter's brush of beaten blue

Yearlings sprint into the shadows, following a mother's lead

Sloping hills tumble on to the horizon

Grass reaches knees, gracefully swaying in the wind

Oil smells fill barren pastures with the fragrance of wealth

Native beliefs live on, traditions kept by time

Ever growing pride for an old Spanish church

Blue cloudless skies will forever remain cause for

Yearning for home and the rolling grassy plains
