Emily Pauline Johnson (Tekahionwake)

Here you will find the Poem The firs of poet Emily Pauline Johnson (Tekahionwake)

The firs

There is a lonely minor chord that sings 
Faintly and far along the forest ways, 
When the firs finger faintly on the strings 
Of that rare violin the night wind plays, 
Just as it whispered once to you and me 
Beneath the English pines beyond the sea.
