Oh, do you see them, the ghost flowers
That on the prairie dance,
Out in the dry, brown grasses,
Ghosts of wild aster plants?
Their garments like dry bones rattle,
Wraiths of the summer that's dead,
Ghosts of the golden-rod yellow
Each wears a snow-white head.
Oh, do you see them, the ghost flowers—
To music of winter's breath,
Out where the trails are faintest,
Dancing the dance of death?
