In The Cold October Water - David A. Groulx

[Other titles in English] [All other titles]

In the cold October water I stood
up to my thighs
the waves bounced aginst my back
as I held my tobacco to the skies

The smoke rose to a cold autumn moon
and over my body bare
the water splashed droplets
in to my long black hair

It was there, in that place
I knew I'd belong
as I stood in the cold dark water
singing my sacred song



David A. Groulx is an Ojibwa poet from Canada and has just published his first book of poetry "Night In The Exude"
