Indian Children


Where we walk to school each day,
Indian children used to play—
All about our native land,
Where the shops and houses stand.


And the trees were very tall,
And there were no streets at all,
Not a church and not a steeple—
Only woods and Indian people.

    I remember another verse…it goes..

    Amd the Wigwams on the ground
    And at night the bears prowl around
    What a different place today
    Where we live and work and play
