Collection of Kansas Poetry

Miss Hattie Horner


And there is love in her blue eyes' I ween__
    The love that keeps a watch from its own tower 
    And on her lips the purpose that endowers 
Her royal children with her royal sheen!' 
Above her floats a gonfalon, unfurled, 
    That men may see her colors from afar, 
And read therein her message to the world; 
    Steadfast she stands, be it in peace or war, 
Nor falters not though heavy clouds be hurled 
    Athwart the glory of her guiding star.
