George stands looking over our 100 acres
“Our Nebraska homestead,” he calls it.
I stand beside him,
My dress strong-sewed
By my work-hard hands
My heart and back
Only once did I cry
When our son Jacob left for California.
I am as unceasing as the prairie wind,
:”Our Nebraska back-breaker,” George calls me,
But my back isn’t broken!
