"God doesn't have to put his name on the corner of
every meadow, because nobody else makes meadows.
|I come here at sunset|
When earth sings her song
Of days long forgotten
My heart hums along
The peace that I find here
Cannot be compared
The splashes of color!
The scented fresh air!
I can't help but wonder
If oneday I'll find
This paradise has succumbed
To the greed of the times
Oh magical prairie
You soothe and inspire
At it's finest hour...
Karen Shaw Matteson
The above image was created on a private 40 acre tract of Virgin Prairie in
Central Iowa. You are looking at an endangered land..every bit as endangered
as the Rain Forest. America... look at the beauty and remember your Heartland
