Day 212 Nokomis' Song

Nokomis' Song is a tribute to Henry Wadsworth Longfellow's epic poem of Hiawatha, that I memorized (only the first several stanzas) many years ago. "By the Shores of Gitcheegummee, by the shining big sea water, stood the the wigwam of Nokomis, Daughter of the Moon, Nokomis"...remember that? It is a great one. I'm off to go read the whole thing....
