. . . poetry from The Trail of Tears


== Farewell Fields ==

Farewell fields.
Fields of wheat.
Fields of millet.

No longer will we scare the crows
Waving wands above the sea;
Sea of wheat.
Sea of millet.

Sweet elfin deer, good-bye.
You spoke tenderly to me
When we coiled together
In the campfire’s sway.

Welcome blindness.
City of blindness,
As we coil together in the smoke
Scared as crows
Beneath U-ne-gas wand.

Welcome sickness.
Welcome sadness
As we lament our neighbors in the ground
At peace again
Beneath U-ne-gas spade.

They lie in these Farewell-fields.

-------
== Broken is My Promise ==

Broken is my promise to you,
Sweet Wewoka of the gray hair.
On Cosawta’s shoulder, rest you
As we sway beneath the litter’s rough
In the dust of the pony’s sway.

Be consoled, dear phantom wife,
For your bones will lay to rest
In the bosom of our earth.

But Cosawta flies away.
His bones wane in the unknown place;
In the broken-promise place,
In the dust of the pony’s sway.

Edward C. Patterson
Come, Wewoka
