The Legend of the Bluebonnet

The Texas fields are covered
With a blanket of deep blue.
But for a little Indian girl,
This would not be true.

Texas land was buried and dry
Rains just would not come
Indians danced and prayed for rain
And beat upon their drums.

The Chief made a proclamation
He appealed to one and all
A prized possession must be sacrificed
Before the rains would fall.

The Indian camp was silent
while each person searched his heart.
But when it came to sacrifice,
With possessions they would not part.

Suddenly a little girl stepped forth,
Holding her blue-clad doll.
She placed it in the roaring fire
and raindrops began to fall.

The rain brought forth the grass,
Among it's blades, flowers of blue.
To be a sign for all the time
Of a love so pure and true.
