2007 Red Earth Parade


You wouldn’t believe the regalia
So bright with feathers and beads
Adorning their beautiful dresses
There were all the necessary needs

There were women of all ages ready
To perform with style and grace
Excitement steadily building
Smiles of expectancy on each face

Such careful consideration
And perfection of ancient tradition
Honoring their ancestors
So many important positions

The jewelry is so incredible
Rings and necklaces and such
Many places they can be purchased
We all love them so very much

And the men in their headdresses
Were so handsome with enormous flair
They looked so important, I’ll tell you
With much perfection and care

So if you come to town, folks
You’ll truly be glad that you stayed
To watch the yearly excitement
Of the 2007 Red Earth Parade!

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
