The Olde Men Say the Earth Only Endures.
You Spoke Truly.
You Spoke Right.
did Not Know then
How Much was Ended.
When I Look back now From this High Hill of my Olde Age,
I can still See the Butchered Women and Children
Lying Heaped and Scattered
all Along the Crooked Gulch
as plain as When my Eyes Saw Them with Eyes still Young.
And I can See that Something Else
Died there in the Bloody Mud,
and was Buried there in the Blizzard.
A People's D ream Died There.
It was a Beautiful Dream...
the Nation's Hoop is Broken and Scattered.
There is No Center any Longer,
the Sacred Tree
