Move about your World

On hollowed ground no soil can last
Time waving winds, horrendous blast
The eagle soars in circle way up there
His call echo’s of mountains anywhere
The bear the beaver all dead and gone
What’s left cannot belong
Where our fathers once sang their song

A lonely desperado rides into the morn
The Hunting grounds are empty and forlorn
The feather once a mighty vitality
Now lonely left as history
So mighty was the warrior’s dream
As he hunted down there at the clear stream

On hollowed ground, his calling just a recoil
A warrior once tossed up the soil
A soil reach filled with life
A freedom worth to strife
The iron horse brought misery
On hollowed ground he cannot see
He feels a lonely deepened fear
His face hollow covered a tear

Many had to die so long ago
His heart is heavy but even so
His head proudly towards the sky
Is his way to lowly die
Deep he draws his last breath of toil
Before the last of his kind
Dies on Hollowed Soil

My brother joined a Native Canadian Tribe
It took him a couple years to complete all the requirements
He enjoyed every minute of it and has made more friends than you can imagine
Native Peoples have a beautiful culture and all kinds of activities for everyone to attend and discover more about them
I have become friends with many Natives myself and they are true blue without a doubt
Hat's off to your poem Helmut

I thank thee form way down in the bottom of my heart

Rex Allen McCoy
Thank you. I wish I could learn a lot more about the cultures. I envy your brother. One of the first friends I had when I came to Canada was a Native American. Over the years we lost sight of each other, but he will always be with me.  

Corinne
Thank you, tragic yes, but also a way to a new start

James

Thanks again for another well done read.
