FOOT-PRINTS, by            
First Line: Shadows of lilac echo the form
Last Line: Unchanging, changing—you remain.
Subject(s): Footprints; Native Americans; Shadows; Indians Of America; American Indians; Indians Of South America

SHADOWS of lilac echo the form
Of my arched shoe,
Where the bare, untrammeled toe
Of an agile Indian may have pressed,
Long years ago.

When Serra's thonged and sandalled feet
Marred the smoothness of tawny sand,
Wistful memory followed birds
Flying in quest
Of genial land.

The tide for her shining lover will reach
When moonlight silvers dunes and beach;
Many feet have passed on your silent plain,—
Unchanging, changing—you remain.
