Poem Of The Week: February 27, 2013

Says reader Judith Flaherty: "I live in Midlothian, VA and am currently working on my first novel, a historical fiction piece about Montana’s legendary white wolf and the beautiful American Yogo sapphire. As part of my research, I spent time in Montana. Thousands of miles in a rental car exposed me to some of the most beautiful land in America. ... The West inspired my poem."


Native Sun


Eyes looked to the West
When life was at its best
Heaven above, clear and blue
Touches land fresh and new

Spirits fly across the sky
Over valley and mountains high
Ride the plains, open wide
Your brothers by your side

Stories told by night’s fire
Young braves filled with desire
Be the one, to make it right
See the white man with no fright

Share what nature gave to all
The Universe our God saw
Green, the color of his land
Against hills brown like sand

Trees grow tall and hear the sound
Of rivers crossing rocks and ground
Men of color, brown and white
To share would have been right

Now we see what went wrong
Those who care sing the song
Blood and heart, together bind
God’s wish for all mankind

In our hands we held the fate
Of those who saw it was too late
Ghosts of men and horse, now rest
With tears in eyes they watch the West
