Tekahionwake ca 1895


  • August is laughing across the sky
    laughing, while paddle, canoe and I
    Drift, drift
    Where hills uplift
    either side of the current..swift
    • from The Song my Paddle sings
  • The pine trees whispering, the gerons cry
    The plover's passing wing, his lullaby
    • from The Camper
