Taps did play
The Indians had fled
And Custer lay there dead
The soldiers lay all around
But none could hear the bugle sound

If you want to hear
What was told to me
Read my Ghost Soldier pages 1-2-3
They're in my poems on page 3

If I disappoint you I apologize
For the story is quite long
We don't always have time to waste
On some one else's song.

Something just seemed to be urging me
To write this poem today
Perhaps because I've spent so much time
With thoughts of yesterday
