DPF / Anonymous (Tewa Song)

For our memories, which we keep and share for a finite time, from Poem A Day: Volume 2, edited by Laurie Sheck, a perpetual calendar of poems; this one’s for a June 24.

from The Willows by the Water Side / by Anonymous, a Tewa Song, translated by Herbert Joseph Spinden

My little breath, under the willows by the water side we used to sit
And there the yellow cottonwood bird came and sang.
