Quotation by Lydia Huntley Sigourney

Ye say they all have passed away,
That noble race and brave;
That their light canoes have vanished
From off the crested wave;
That, mid the forests where they roamed,
There rings no hunters' shout;
But their name is on your waters,
Ye may not wash it out.
Lydia Huntley Sigourney (1791–1865), U.S. poet. Indian Names (l. 1–8). . .
