The Song My Paddle Sings(excerpt) by Emily Pauline Johnson
West wind, blow from your prairie nest,
Blow from the mountains, blow from the west.

The sail is idle, the sailor too;
O! wind of the west, we wait for you.

Blow, blow!
I have wooed you so,
But never a favour you bestow.
You rock your cradle the hills between,

But scorn to notice my white lateen.
I stow the sail, unship the mast:
I wooed you long but my wooing’s past;

My paddle will lull you into rest.
O! drowsy wind of the drowsy west,

Sleep, sleep,
By your mountain steep,
Or down where the prairie grasses sweep!

Now fold in slumber your laggard wings,

For soft is the song my paddle sings.
