I Walked Under the Cottonwoods in the Merry Month of May (Theodore Roosevelt National Park)

I Walked Under the Cottonwoods in the Merry Month of May (Theodore Roosevelt National Park)

I Walked Under the Cottonwoods in the Merry Month of May
You see it was spring in the Dakotas
Everything was in bloom with all shades and tones of colors
The light of the sun came in and out as I walked under their branches and leaves
Sometimes a breeze came and created this smooth, flowing sound of water.
I was near the banks of the Little Mo
A little piece of Heaven in the lands of the Dakotas.

Another work of short poetry or prose to complement the image captured one early morning from River Woodland Overlook in Theodore Roosevelt National Park. For me, it described the sight of those cottonwood trees along the banks of the Little Missouri River as it flowed on by through this portion of the national park. And then there was the greens and yellows and other colors that signified spring in this part of the country. With the bluffs on the other side of the river, it complemented the setting with the blues of the skies above.
