IN THE VALLEY OF THE BLUE MIST

 

In the Valley Of The Blue Mist,

Indian spirits can be seen . . .

And sounds from their ancient past

Haunt that world of in-between.

 

The white man needs to enter there

To see what he has wrought.

And feel the anguish of their souls

His selfish greed has brought.

 

But only Indians visit there,                                                             

The white man’s not allowed.                                  

It’s he who sent their spirits there,

Under such a heinous cloud,

 

It’s shameful, but it can’t be changed,

So spirits ever weep,    

For the loss of their Tribal Lands –                            

Whites promised they could keep.
