Hopi Song of the Desert
By William H. Simpson
 
From “Along Old Trails”

YOU are so beautiful!—
Like the face of Ta-wa-wis-ni-mi.
 
I cannot speak the words
To tell of your too-much beauty—
You, the desert;        5
You, the going down of the sun;
You, my beloved.
 
If I could hold you,
If I could touch you!—
But you flee from me,        10
As runs the deer.
 
You are so beautiful!
If only my song
Could tell of your beauty!
