Those who saw the buffaloes by thousands and how they pawed the prairie sod into dust with their hoofs, their great heads down pawing on in a great pageant of dusk,
Those who saw the buffaloes are gone.
And the buffaloes are gone.
—from “Buffalo Dusk” by Carl Sandburg
Happy to say they’re not, in fact, gone for good.

    Ok, i cant hear the word “bison” without sharing my dad’s corny joke.

    Whats a bison?

    A bison is what an Australian washes his face in. (say with an aussie accent)

    sorry to inflict that on you so early in the morning.

    About Monica’s bison joke — I first heard it from our Australian neighbor, whose accent was good-natured and not quite that thick!

    Yes it is good that they are still with us in growing numbers. Thanks for the great photo and quote.
