I remember walking through a meadow;
the excitement of moonlight rides.
I remember walking dusty roads
and the fun of hayrides!
I remember snow capped mountains;
rainbow trout jumping high!
I remember rivers flowing like fountains;
the joy of being alive!
Learning to dance the polka;
dreaming of the future.
Sitting serenely on a boulder,
these things I remember.
I remember twisting turning roads,
low green valleys, rushing rivers;
majestic peaks reaching towards the sky!
A land of hope and promise.
My land, Colorado.
