Pioneer Women

Pioneer Women
Blazing the trail
Fearless and loyal
Their hearts did prevail.

Discarding their treasures
They forded the streams
Lightening the load
Pressing on t’ward their dreams.

Babies were born
In the roughest of times
Cared for by family
Though some often died.

Pioneer Women
Knew sorrow and pain
Typhoid and cholera
Took its toll on the plains.

They wielded an ax
With all of their might
Along side their husbands
Early morning ‘til night.

Lye soap and scrub boards
Were tools of the trade
For once a week washings
Of clothes… all homemade.

Pioneer Women
Held strong to their faith
Asking God’s blessings
They walked in His Grace.
