Pearl

A lifelong love story.

A wild girl who ran away
To find her love among the wind and sand;
His native pearl, was what he used to say,
As he would gently take her hand

The ancient lands from which she came,
The pattern of a people of the earth;
A pearl among the Navajo, her name –
And love in him which she had given birth

And they grew old together, he and Pearl,
Her love remained as always, wild and fierce:
But never had a boy more loved a girl,
Nor died with so much honor
In his tears
