Gwich'in Princess

she calls the birds
who flock down at her feet
i part of her entourage
follow her
the animals;
emily, jack, silaene...
she protects them from danger
leaves notes in the snow
to warn for poisonous leaves
at the y in the path
she stretches her arms
'the spirits tell me where to go'
'this path is warmer'
Bull is one of her best friends
we cross his tracks
she caresses a fallen tree
'oh dear, you are the best in nature'
there's good spirits and bad
she erases a sign
'the one who kills was here'
The Gwich'in Princess she makes sure
he doesn't stay in her domain
