CHOCTAW

Page 406

Moved by vote at Washington,
Treaties broken, one by one.
Choctaw.

Crossing rivers, valleys,
plains,
Down the Trail of Tears, you
came,
Choctaws.

Stumbling, falling, rise
again,
Papoose, squaw and stalwart
men.
Choctaws.

Settling in a newer place,
Seeking sorrows to erase.
Choctaws.

Helped to hew a Commonwealth,
With your cunning Indian stealth.
Choctaw.

We, your part blood sons, ac-
claim,
Greatest honor to the name.
Choctaw.

BY O. F. MULDROW,
Norman, Okla.
