Poetry of Kansas

My Homeland

Oh, all my life I've wandered 'round,
      But in my heart still knowing
That Kansas e'er will be my homeland,
      Where happy faces are glowing;
Somehow I'll give her of my best,
      Oh true I'll ever be,
For she's the jewel of the West
      And means the world to me.
I want to serve my dear old state
      Each day a little more
My future's bound up in her fate,
      For Kansas I adore;
And when I'm back within my state
      At noon, or dusk, or dawn,
I sit right down and feel at home,
      Content no more to roam.
