He Who Sees Dreams

That wrinkled old Apache He Who Sees the Dreams, Is said to be half-crazy and old As the rivers and the streams. He says he saw two great mountains Made of iron and of glass-- And then two silent Thunderbirds, Before his dream did soon pass. And then there came great lightning As the birds hit solid rock, Then both the mighty mountains fell And all the world stopped in shock. What next I asked He Who Sees Dreams: He said it was unfulfilled. Enemies like wolves surround you And your great land goes untilled. I trembled and then I shuddered To hear of this dreary foe: "There are those brave and those that die-- But rewards are what you sow." These were last words of He Who Sees As he pointed to the moon so high, The two twin mountains were now gone, But eagles filled morning sky.
