....Colorado, once Latham Station, a stop on the Overland Trail,
then named Union Colony home of the mighty and frail;
named for Horace Greeley of "go west, young man" fame,
with a quote like that, you cannot argue the name.
This is one busy place, here on the eastern slopes,
with weather that's wild, from cold to mild, that temper ones hopes"
it's agriculture that makes the wheels turn, cropland and range,
wheat, corn and a lot of beef, to someone east it would seem strange.
There is a lot to do, even vacation on a farm,
Whoever would pay them to pick peas, well I'll be darn;
many museums and exhibitions all through the year,
visited by some, home to many who hold this place quite dear.
