Silos – Cozad,  Nebraska

I photographed these silos one May afternoon, when the Nebraska grasses were still  crunchy and golden yellow.

 

Prairie Spring 

by Willa Cather

 

Evening and the flat land,

Rich and sombre and always silent;

The miles of fresh-plowed soil,

Heavy and black, full of strength and harshness;

The growing wheat, the growing weeds,

The toiling horses, the tired men;

The long empty roads,

Sullen fires of sunset, fading,

The eternal, unresponsive sky.

Against all this, Youth,

Flaming like the wild roses,

Singing like the larks over the plowed fields,

Flashing like a star out of the twilight;

Youth with its insupportable sweetness,

Its fierce necessity,

Its sharp desire,

Singing and singing,

Out of the lips of silence,

Out of the earthy dusk.

 

Winter lies too long in country towns; hangs on until it is stale and shabby, old and sullen.” ― Willa Cather , My Antonia
