Where I am From

I am from hay meadows and icy feed
grounds, from baby calves and old gentle
horses.  I am from strong backs and strong
minds, generations of pioneers -
men and women not afraid to stand
for what they believe, to say what they think.
Mothers who love their husbands and their babies,
no matter what.  I am from wild roses and spur
straps, not afraid of rough horses or hard
work.  I am from cattlemen and teachers,
a cowboy and a city girl.  Looking to the future, trying
no to forget my past.  I am from straight
pins and lass ropes, quilt scraps and horn wraps.
