I grew up on prairies colored gray and black and white,
Sheltered from the rainbows, and the starry sky at night.
For I was raised by farmers, and their lives were strictly bound,
Worn down to the drabness of the dull and dusty ground.
I stumbled on a country of weird and wondrous folk,
Where the wizards turn to flaming heads, and the witches turn to smoke.
Dazzling with vivid colors, like none I’d ever known,
Where sorcery is everyday routine.
And of all the hues I’ve seen,
Emerald green shows it’s sure no place like home.
Although I’d heard of cities, it’s the first one that I saw,
Companioned by the lion, and the men of tin and straw.
Its verdant grass contrasted with the yellow to the west,
And the rich blues of the little folk in the land that loves me best.
And the road that we four traveled, with its billion bricks of gold,
Led through forests full of fell enchantment, creepy, dark and cold.
I feared their magic, faced it down; the danger I’ll attest,
And the worst one was the witch out of the west.
I heard a grateful murmur when I opened up my door
To a land ablaze with blossoms of a hundred hues or more.
Where my feet were shod in rubies, and each greeting was a poem.
I took one breath of that sweet, clean air, and I knew I wasn’t home!
