Let me ride through the wide open spaces that I love. Don't fence me in.
Give me the easy companionship of other winter-weary souls who just want to soak up some sun and the burbling song of western meadowlarks.
Give me blue-eyed grass
and Brewer's blackbird eggs, shining olives in a grassy martini.
Give me duck hatch, and blue-winged teal springing from every roadside ditch.
