….North Dakota, trading hub of the northern mid-west,
guardian of the USA our interests in the world and all the rest;
at Minot Air Force Base there are an array of destructive forces,
should they be needed but only if there are no other choices.

Two Railroad museums are part of the town,
tracks come through from all around;
there are so many interesting things to see,
but one of them just calls to me.

Go see the Stave Church, see photo above,
built in the past, as a labor of love,
it reminded the settlers of the homelands so dear,
bringing their past from Scandinavia to here.

It is built using post and beam,
but the outside walls are not what they seem;
there are only rows of vertical plank,
strong and sturdy and of the first rank.
