The Rays and Edges of Heaven: A poem

Sunbeams and moonbeams,
gold-linings and silver-linings,
the rays and the edges of heaven.

"She Who Knows"

'She who knows' likes to dance with the wind,

And swim with the river otters.

Running through the prairie grass chasing the clouds,

She loves to be at play.

'She who knows' countenance changes like the tides.

"What is coming and who is coming," she whispers to her elders.

'She who knows' saw the white man coming,

The long winter and the dead buffalo,

The snake on tracks, scaring the land,

The flying lead, men falling dead.

'She who knows knew, and is no longer.

Her spirit dances upon the wind and runs through the prairie grass.

'She who knows' is home with the white buffalo and The Great Spirit.
