    Ye say they all have passed away,
    That noble race and brave;
    That their light canoes have vanished
    From off the crested wave;
    That, mid the forests where they roamed,
    There rings no hunters’ shout;
    But their name is on your waters,
    Ye may not wash it out.
    —Lydia Huntley Sigourney (1791–1865)
