...ragments backward from him, 
With the breathing of his nostrils, 
With the tempest of his anger, 
Blew them back at his assailant; 
Seized the bulrush, the Apukwa, 
Dragged it with its roots and fibres 
From the margin of the meadow, 
From its ooze the giant bulrush; 
Long and loud laughed Hiawatha!

Sat upon the crags around them,

Still the church is tenable, 
Whence issued the fated ball 
That half avenged the city's fall, 
When Alp, her fierce assailant, fell: 
Thither bending sternly back, 
They leave before a bloody track; 
And, with their faces to the foe, 
Dealing wounds with every blow, 
The chief, and his retreating train, 
Join to those within the fane; 
There they yet may breathe awhile, 
Shelter'd by the massy pile.
