Cousin - four generations removed
E Pauline Johnson
There was once, this unbelievable Lady, of great source,
who travelled this great earth, as a matter of life’s coarse,
carrying with her, a heritage of great, wondrous force.
To the world – then and now – she brought the word
onto two continents – Kings and Queens, fortunate, heard
of the life and times of her people and how hard
the road for many, even for this bard
who told, preformed, of beauty, degradation in this land,
told of the heroics, the genocide of the first, the red man.
This Lady, of integrity, honesty, great soul came to stand
for – what there is so little of, from mans deceptive hand
as we trample upon much of what once was noble, human
and the coarse, the source, the force that could make us so
humane – especially at a time in this worlds long history
where hate, prejudice, greed rule – could we let it all go ?
This was a Beautiful Lady, who performed, wrote a story
