Tipi Cover II

Their days and their seasons
belonged to their dream time These ancient wanderers
of myth and legend,
moved on an endless
rolling sea of grass,
passing through day
and night like a vast
host of shaggy kings.
They roamed their endless
world with only History
to mark their passing.

In their wake,
wide swaths of trampled ground
lay bare to the sun and wind
giving testament to their
invincible presence
and gypsy spirit.

Their passing gave witness
to this open land
and to the strength
for all who lived there.
