One Last Windmill

The Last Windmill

Well! Hello there, folks! 

Did y’all come here just to see li’l ol’ me?

Grand Island Windmill

I am the last windmill, ya know!

The blackbirds told me so.

Retired Windmill

Stand back and endure the awe,

because fainting is against the law,

and awfully embarrassing, too, I hear tell.

Farm view

As you pass on by, say, “Hey!” to my comrades for me, will ya?

before they’re rolled away to meet their Maker.

Until the cows come home...

Don’t worry about those cows, now. Ya hear?

Once they come home, it’s all over for everybody.

The Platte River near Grand Island

River is an exception to that rule.

I pray it always runs.

Sir Windmill
