People's Poetry

edited by Corrine Frisch

It’s Time to Repay

A town on the prairie
thrives
amid trash, butts, bottles.
Proud of her people
an illustrious history;
domes dot the skyline.

A town on the prairie
needs nurturing, beauty, a
lifting of spirit, and love.

A town on the prairie
waits.

— Helen E. Rilling
