Poetry of Kansas

Hello God!

Good morning God, how are the
        aspen trees,
Last night I heard them weeping in
        the snow,
That's a splendid storm you're
        wearing on your head,
              Hello God, hello!
How are the pine and spruce trees
        making out?
I heard them crack beneath the
        Weight of snow,
You're dyked out in a gorgeous
        storm today,
              Hello God, hello!
How will the gray birds weather
        such a gale?
I saw them blown like feathers in
        the snow,
Where did you get that blizzard you
        have on?
              Hello God, hello!
