Poetry of Kansas

Sky Is Tall Enough

Hills boast, we remain
    Ever, so.
Look at us, pines say
    If you would know
Height  . . .  But the sky will change
    For any cloud,
Sky is tall, tall enough,
    And not too proud
To bend from the high place
    Where suns swing clear,
And seeing a lonely one
    To come quite near.
