“We weep,
tears of blood,
we weep,
In despair, crying,
we weep;
the sun forever has stolen
the light from his eyes.
No more his face do we see,
no more his voice do we hear,
nor will his affectionate gaze
watch over his people.”

Jane Bierhorst, In the Trail of the Wind: American Indian Poems and Ritual Orations
