THE SONG OF THE " METIS" TRAPPER
BY ROLETTE
H URRAH for the great white way! Hurrah for the dog and sledge! As we snow-shoe along, We give them a song, With a snap of the whip and an urgent " mush on, — Hurrah for the great white way! Hurrah!
Hurrah for the snow and the ice!
As we follow the trail, We call to the dogs with whistle and song,
And reply to their talk With only " mush on, mush on "!
Hurrah for the snow and the ice! Hurrah 1
Hurrah for the gun and the trap,—
As we follow the lines By the rays of the mystic light
That flames in the north with banners so bright, As we list to its swish, swish, swish, through the air all night, Hurrah for the gun and the trap! Hurrah! Hur­rah ! Hurrah!
