I.
Here where grain elevators tower
As time ticks away each hour
We harness agricultural power
When dewdrops like tears shower.

Wondrous workings we contemplate,
Written on a fresh, clean, slate.

We take up an inspiring crusade
Exploring each hidden glade.

Help us escape a Penny Arcade
To amaze at a snowflake’s brocade.
