"One generation passes away and another generation comes,
but the earth abides forever."
Ecclesiastes 1:4

Great great grandma wore a bonnet
When she worked with her garden hoe
When she planted lettuce and radishes
And cleared the weeds from every row.

Grandmother wore a bonnet like this 
When she hung her laundry to dry
Fastening sheets with clothes pins
Out under the blazing blue sky.

My bonnet's just for playing
Pretending to be a pioneer
Working hard in my house on the prairie
Like she did in yesteryear.
