    OLD LAUGHING BEAR
    `'`'`'`'`'`'`'`'`'`'`'`'`'`'`'`'`'`'`'`'`'`'`
    There he was sitting...
    Caucasian had come and taken it all
    Tribe after tribe, had already fallen
    A spiritual man who knew no fear
    The courageous warrior,
    Old Laughing Bear

    Grayed by time,
    Many moons many a squaw
    He salvages young braves
    Listening... in awe

    Unspoken poems,
    Empowered to dance free
    The Spirit World!
    Have sight... will see

    The Great Spirit, equivocates
    Ancestral guides, proliferate
    Old Laughing Bear, envisions self hate
    Visions foretold... 'dissed - buffalo state

    Chant... in ceremonial guise
    Chant... less prone to socialize
    Chant... to reconcile the tribes
    Chant... that thunderbirds may rise

    At risk, a man
    One dare be free ~
    Nature, lands...
    Then poetry

    this peace touched my heart....I have a huge amount of respect and admiration for the native american indian as a people.. so much so that I believe them to be one of the most, if not the most, beautifully spirited people who walk/walked this earth..I could go on and on, but suffice to say..I loved the beauty of this peace...
