Siwanoy Of Keskeskeck

american_indian_tribes_2Borne upon the Aquahung
Siwanoy hunt for sport and game
Token embers of fires past
Seasons gone forsaken voice
Of mindful nights’ soft whisper
Heavy drops of Rananchqua tears

Siwanoy of a native landgreasygrass-com-dream1
Bidding to its bleakest hour
Hear the call of currents course
Summoning bode of Lenape doom
Nocturnal seasons, passing bloom

Keskeskeck of firstborn tongue
Forged among Times changing force
Beckons taut from gain or form
Of foreign steps upon its source
Hailing reign, deceptive shimmer
Forgotten waters of Bronck’s river.
