Emily Pauline Johnson (Tekahionwake)

Here you will find the Poem Good-bye of poet Emily Pauline Johnson (Tekahionwake)


Sounds of the seas grow fainter, 
 Sounds of the sands have sped; 
The sweep of gales, 
The far white sails, 
 Are silent, spent and dead. 

Sounds of the days of summer 
 Murmur and die away, 
And distance hides 
The long, low tides, 
 As night shuts out the day.
