Cherokee Summer

Paint ponies by the lodge White manes Turned silver in the moon’s glow Taste of Mother Earth Burden baskets hang at the door They hold many seasons Of worries & fears The night owl comes He sings the death song Your time here has ended The West door beckons you Night Owl grows silent © March 1984 In Memory of Jacob Michael MacCallister March 18, 1957 ~ January 26, 1983
