Subject(s): Trail Of Tears (1838-39); Native Americans - Removal


Since I have thought so long on greater things,
And viewed from ranging hills a broader day,
The little wounds which stung have taken wings;
And deeper hurts have slowly ached away.

I know not joy so quickly as I did,
But neither do the tears so lightly fall.
The narrow confines of each day are hid,
By looking at what lieth under all.

I have become a part of what I see;
Small things that pass count not for weal nor woe:
A vast horizon hovers over me:
The landscape widens as I onward go.
