Have you ever walked in the woods and felt you were not alone?

Indian Trails


Indian Trails throughout Ohio

Indian Trails from long ago

Some now covered over by concrete

But it wasn’t always so


Indian trails that lead up the Maumee

Winding along the river’s side

Traveled by the noble Shawnee

It was where they lived and died


Some trails took them to Chillicothe

Some made their way to Prophets Town

To the Great Lakes near Sandusky

Then all the way to Serpent’s Mound


Up a summit on a wooded hilltop

The Algonquin would scout his way

A long journey before he would next stop

To a distant village he’d have to blaze


These Indian trails today still remain

You can hike along these paths

In the footsteps of the warrior braves

Just like walking into the past


See a red fox in the early morning

There’s a whitetail deer near at dawn

And a silhouette of a Shawnee hunting

Look away and then he’s gone

As a former Michigander with traces of the life in the blood of my ancestors, I'm pleased by your efforts. Pontiac, Okemos, Cheboygan, Onondaga, all names of towns and cities throughout the state, just to name a few of the ways we commemorate our heritage. Love what you do Paul.

Thanks again, Dick

Have you ever walked in the woods and felt you were not alone?

Just about every trip I take into the woods, and I like your poem.
Reviewed by David Maclellan 6/24/2010
Great imagery Paul, these words take to memories of many times I have been in the wilderness and thought I was not alone, as John pointed out, the woods have a soul of their own.
Reviewed by John Flanagan 6/24/2010
Yes, Paul, every walk in the woods has a presence other than one's own, I've always felt it. Again, this is worthwhile history, your sense of place and atmosphere is strong and secure and a delight to read.
