Here you will find the Poem Where leaps the ste. marie of poet Emily Pauline Johnson (Tekahionwake)

Where leaps the ste. marie


What dream you in the night-time 
 When you whisper to the moon? 
What say you in the morning? 
 What do you sing at noon? 
When I hear your voice uplifting, 
Like a breeze through branches sifting, 
And your ripples softly drifting 
 To the August airs a-tune. 


Lend me your happy laughter, 
 Ste. Marie, as you leap; 
Your peace that follows after 
 Where through the isles you creep. 
Give to me your splendid dashing, 
Give your sparkles and your splashing, 
Your uphurling waves down crashing, 
 Then, your aftermath of sleep.
