Where the Chinook Blows
THE BAD LANDS
Bluffs of ochre and brown and red,
In varied glory flare, For here is the land of mystery,
Where God plays solitaire.
A gray plain and a soft mirage, In the blue haze over there,
For here is the land of lonesomeness, Where God plays solitaire.
A mudded butte and shapes that come
And at the sunset stare, For here is the land of forgotten pasts,
Where God plays solitaire,
A silence that dwarfs the soul of man, Oh, the silence everywhere!
For here is the land of things unsolved, Where God plays solitaire.
[159]
