Tewa Song
By William H. Simpson
From “Along Old Trails”

ABOVE the lands,
Above the seas,
You see, you know,
All mysteries—
    Sun Old Man,        5
    Moon Old Man!
Would I could fly
On widespread wing
Where whirlpools are
And flame-tips sing—        10
    Sun Old Man,
    Moon Old Man!
Die in the sea,
And rise at morn;
Thus would I go,        15
And thus be born—
    Sun Old Man,
    Moon Old Man!
