Excerpt from Indian Old-Man Stories: More Sparks From War Eagle's Lodge-Fire To Little Bear (Chief of the Crees) Seamed and old, the pawn of progressIn the wicked hand of fate, Silent, sullen, unrelentingIn his deep, undying hate: Hate that want brings to the haughty;Hate that pride alone can feel;Hate that comes of wrongs inflicted;Hate and sorrow, deep and real. Step by step and ever backwardO'er the ground his fathers trod;Fighting e'er, and e'er invokingStrength and peace from Pagan god -Gone his greatness and his freedom;Grinning want alone remains;Bison skulls and wallows mock himOn his old, ancestral plains.
