Tin: war-fjoil iliil not wake to strifo
Tin sfiun; men of our I'ucsl-'lanil ;
No red hand ra.-ipi'd the 1 ;i t I '-li i ii 1 o
At Aicouski's command:
XV v lwll no war-ilancc ly I lie ilini
And ml lilit tin rrf?inj Manic;
r warrior-yell, tmr half lc-lmnn,
(fpoti tiic midnight hmv.es came.
There wa-t no portent in the sky,
No shail iv on the round hrijjdit sun;
With liht, and inirlli, and melody,
The loiir, lair summer days came on.
We were a hajv people then,
I'ejoicinjj in our hnnter-nmed;
No liiof-prints ol'the pale-tie-ed men
Had marred our liuest-solitudc.
The land win ours tliis glorious land
With all ils wealth ol'wood and sfreains
Our warriors strong of heart and hand
Our daughters heautiliil as dreams.
When weaiied, at the thirsty noon,
We knelt us where the spring pushed up,
To tasle our leather's hlessed hoon
I'nlikc the white man's poison cup.
There came unto my lather's hut
A wan, weak creature of distress;
The red man's door is never shut
Against the lone and shelterless;
A ltd when he knelt before his feet,
.My father led the si i auger in;
lie gave him of his hunter-meat
Alas ! it was a deadly sin !
The stranger's voice was not like ours
His liiee at first was sadly pale,
A ii mi 'twas like the yellow llowers,
Which tremble i:i the meadow "ale.
Ami when he him laid down to die,
And murmured of his father-land,
My mother wiped his tearful eye,
jMy father held his burning hand !
He died nt last the funeral yell
Kaug upward from his burial sod,
And the old l'owwah knelt to tell
The tidings to the white man's (iod !
The next day came my father's brow
Grew heavy with a fearful pain;
lie did not take his hunting-bow
Ho never sought the woods again !
lie died even as the white tran died
My mother, she was smitten too
My sisters vanished from my side,
Like diamonds from the sun-lit dew.
And then we heard the Powwahs say
That (od had sent his angel loith,
To sweep our ancient tribes away,
And poison and unpeople, earth.
Ami it was so from day to day
The spirit of the plague went on,
And those at morning blithe and gay,
Were dying at the set of sun.
They died our free, bold hunters died
The living might not give them graves
Save when, along the water-side,
They cast them to the hurrying waves.
The carrion-crow, the ravenous beast,
Turned loathing from the ghastly dead;
Well might they sliuu the funeral feast
Ry that destroying angel spread !
One utter one, the red men fell;
Our gallant war-tribe passed away-c-And
I alone am left to tell
The story of its swift decay.
Alone alone a withered leaf
Vet clinging to its naked bough;
The pale race scorn the aged chief,
And I will join my fathers now.
The spirit of my people bend
At midnight from the solemn wot,
To me their kindly arms extend
They call me to their home of rest !
