BLACK BUTTE, by            
First Line: Squat on the prairie, scowling, sits black butte, mightiest rock-chief of them
Last Line: And the rock lips break into a long, bitter smile!
Subject(s): Mountains; Hills; Downs (great Britain)


Squat on the prairie, scowling, sits Black Butte, mightiest rock-chief of them all.

The west lowers purple curtains:
Behind them the sun, donning ceremonial raiment,
Stands forth in Indian splendor.

The brow of Black Butte glistens,
The hard face is softened
And the rock lips break into a long, bitter smile!
