Chasing Laura Ingalls Wilder: traveling through her world, one homesite at a time

Haiku Monday: Little House on the Prairie Museum

Verdigris River

Some snakes down here are poison
Carrie was born here.

This replica cabin on the homesite grounds was built by volunteers in the 1970s.

Indians close by
Boundary lines aren’t that clear
Settlers or squatters?

Creek roars at Christmas
Tin cups, a penny, cookies
Happy little girls

People call “racist”
But reflection of the time
Learn from our mistakes

    Little girl dreaming
    Living through another time
    Until recess ends.
