LONG SHADOWS 

Long Shadows at first Sun Light

Stretch over mountain stream

There ran the wolf and cougar

See their dens are empty now

No Crow or Sioux runs with them

For man has misplaced the dreams

That made the rivers run

Long shadows turn before the night

As darkness embraces the Sun

All descend into the Abyss

Reflected in starlight’s Dream

Shadows come at first light

And release nights tender embrace

Surrender to the rising sun

Feather, claw, skull and bone

For man knows not the value

No, nor the gift of Immortality
