Longing North . . .

caribou northFar in the north my heart lies,
among dark taiga and flaming skies,
where wolf song haunts the sea of night,
and mountain sheep keep the heights.

Far from the sun among boreal ways,
in lonely wind the taiga sways,
my Yupik brothers step the path of souls,
and a wild place makes one whole.
