Emily Pauline Johnson (Tekahionwake)

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

The giant oak

And then the sound of marching armies 'woke 
Amid the branches of the soldier oak, 
And tempests ceased their warring cry, and dumb 
The lashing storms that muttered, overcome, 
Choked by the heralding of battle smoke, 
When these gnarled branches beat their martial drum.
