FIRE IN MY HEART


Only eagles and turtles

Can look beyond today

But let us act as if we were a miigis shell

And the great bright Fisher Star

That dwell and shine in the Forever Sky


Then, go with me as far as you can

And I will go with you

We will fly with the Thunderbirds

While there is breath in my body

And fire in my heart.


- Free after Alaxchiiaahush (1848 – 1932)
