[Verse 1]
Dawn wind sighs;
Wild Bird waking
Palling stars
Day now breaking
From thy lodge
Smoke plume winging,
Soon you come
Thru red willows singing
Sweet love song
My flute calling; song calling
O’er hills
Dawn light falling
From her lodge Wild Bird coming; lodge coming
Hark my heart!
Hush, now thy wild drumming!
