Hopi Maiden
By William H. Simpson
From “In Hopi-land and Other Lands”

AT the mealing stones
Is one singing butterfly songs—
Fly, yellow wings, with my love,
That has wings like your own.
Go, in the golden shining of the sun,        5
Where the cornfields are.
Yellow wings, you are my loving,
Home from the flight.
Somebody is hoeing the corn;
Heard you not his love for me?        10
