Song of Kawas, The Eagle

Song of Kawas, The Eagle [I]

_Pawnee_

    O'er the prairie flits in ever widening circles the shadow of a
        bird about me as I walk;
    Upward turn my eyes, Kawas looks upon me, she turns with flapping
        wings and far away she flies.

    Round about a tree in ever widening circles an eagle flies, alert
        watching o'er his nest;
    Loudly whistles he, a challenge sending far, o'er the country wide
        it echoes, there defying foes.
