The Waradgery Tribe

Harried we were, and spent,
Broken and falling,
Ere as the cranes we went,
Crying and calling.

Summer shall see the bird
Backward returning;
Never shall there be heard
Those, who went yearning.

Emptied of us the land;
Ghostly our going;
Fallen like spears the hand
Dropped in the throwing.

We are the lost who went,
Like the cranes, crying;
Hunted, lonely and spent
Broken and dying.
