On the new homestead life was harsh

few comforts on the rugged land

having to build a shelter to live in

through all weather they toiled on

to make a living from the ground

dangers from roaming beasts found!


In the early pioneering years so hard

isolation in the merciless wilderness

reliant on their resourcefulness to fend

against the risk of possible frontal attack

from native American indians  a threat

dangers so real often in a cold sweat


Amongst the forest within their cabin

far from any neighbours did they live

the only transport their faithful horses

of their limitations were truly aware

yet were content in this way of living

realizing the environment unforgiving!


Here to start a new beginning as settlers

pioneers in the new frontier of the west

with all its dangers they took their chance

this was no place then for any romance!
