The Deepest Blue in Texas
by The Beatnik
Our state flower is beautiful indeed.
Lush fields of bluebonnets evoke the heavenly.
Along miles of Texas highways the air is sweet.
God's awesome majesty scattered in fields of green.
Under painted skies of purple and orange
As far as the eye can see.
As majestic as the state she calls home,
This wildflower grows only in her native soil.
No yellow rose can outshine her,
Not the eyes of a Texas Queen.
The deepest blue in Texas,
Just like her new blue jeans.
So let's walk in fields of azure
And hold hands under sunny skies
Until the sun goes down and evening turns to night.
Then we'll lie on a bed of indigo blooms in the moonlight.
Brave settlers crossed the wilds of Texas,
and buried poor babes along the way.
Their eyes beheld a sea of bright red
while wagons muddled along through clay.
Lush crimson waves drenched their thirsty eyes,
over fields bold and lavishly sprawled.
Prairie girls would tuck some in their hair.
Indian Paintbrushes they were called.
When news of the Alamo came ‘round,
it sure broke every stout heart in two,
and as each tear rained upon the ground,
sprang a flower clad in bluest blue.
Those petals shaped like little bonnets
helped to comfort and patch aching hearts,
and like a promise they bloom each spring,
painting pastures into works of art.
There is a place for me
in a field of bluebonnets of their own spree
Under a pecan tree
growing so wild and free
In fields by the highway for everyone to see
No picking let them stay fresh in their colorful glee
They're so beautiful and I know we can agree
Bluebonnets in the Afternoon
by Madison Humada
I remember those afternoons when we'd dance among the flowers.
The sun sat high up in the sky, tanning our skin for hours.
We grew up sweet and slow in the Texas bluebonnets.
Their scent did touch my heart and left its mark upon it.
The sun has now set on that ever blue field,
We've found out what our lives would yield.
It's been years yet we have more than our memories.
We walk that field today and I feel your arms around me.
Someday soon we'll have our children with us.
They too will play in the bluebonnets of Texas.
