Tawodi (Hawk) Poem
For Hawk Littlejohn
Long Person, I come to pray with you Where life begins at the edge of earth and water You have been flowing since before I was born; You will sing long after I am gone. Hear now my voice and stretch it back And onwards so it moves, like you, beyond time.
Wado! I am thankful for this old friend returned Brother Tawodi, who stood with me on similar banks In our Beloved Mountains, long ago, We were brothers, not only in spirit.
Our friendship is sacred. These words are True. Gahlgwogi! (Seven)!
