How Wounded Thunder Earned His Name

               You stand on "Wounded Thunder's” hallowed ground.

                He boomed such boastful tales  that fearless chief!

                There was no brave as clever to be found

                until he met the source of all his grief.

                There came a one who all his tricks would tell,

                and this is where he made his greatest blunder.

                The minx so bold who knew him all too well

                he married, . . . . and her name was "Stealing Thunder."

But found it easy to place all left over poems, 11-15. Yeah... You made the list, you are right above my poem.. I am happy I made the list after all....luv~ Linda

    I like this one because it is about Native Americans. There is a native American fair in Brooklyn and I always go to it. There is dancing. crafts, and a healing circle. At the last one I joined in the dance. I believe that you have invented an interesting character here. Great nave! Peace & Love Matthew Anish
