Prairie Cemetery
Donated by Martin Nollett, Jr.

The wind may gently blow the grass,
Or snow and cold may come to pass,
In spring the rain will bring the flower,
That helps to gladden every hour.

While those here lay beneath the sod,
Their souls abide with their God.
While the lark it's sweet song will give,
Their spirits on and on will live.

We know not all the paths you trod,
We only know they led to God.
We know you in the stories told,
Whether you were young or you were old.

Tilled the soil or built the house,
Or ran the forge or milked the cows,
Or perhaps a smile is what you brought,
And none of these count for naught.

Or loving hands that held a child,
Or made a home from land so wild.
Are voices in this cemetery
Wind and birds in the quiet prarie?

I know our souls will always share,
The love of Christ and peace and care.
We come not to mourn your death its said,
But to celebrate the life you led.
