Quotes[edit]

  • And my tears, too, have stained this heirloomed ground,
    When reading in these treatises some weird
    Miracle, I turned a leaf and found
    A white hair fallen from my father's beard.
    • Heirloom (1982).

Indian Reservation: Caughnawaga (1983)[edit]

  • Where are the braves, the faces like autumn fruit,
    who stared at the child from the coloured frontispiece?
  • This is a grassy ghetto, and no home.
  • For the tourist's
    brown pennies scattered at the old church door,
    the ragged papooses jump, and bite the dust.
  • The animals pale, the shine of the fur is lost,
    bleached are their living bones.
    About them watch
    as through a mist, the pious prosperous ghosts.
