Review of "Prairie Spring" by Willa Cather

"Prairie Spring" by Pulitzer Prize winning author Willa Cather (1873 - 1947) was offered by's Poem-A-Day on December 29, 2013.  The poem was first published in 1913 as a prologue to her novel O Pioneers!  A link to the poem may be found here:

I was reminded of Walt Whitman's poetry as I read "Prairie Spring."  The poem is at its core a modern "list" poem but with rich imagery of the midwest.  It may also be read as a hymn to Youth.
