Black Elk Soup

Black Elk
Mythological Facts

Then I was standing
On the highest mountain
And beneath me was the whole world.
I was seeing all things
Like one being.
And I saw one circle,
And in the centre one mighty
Flowering tree
To shelter all.
And it was holy.
This was the vision of Black Elk,
The last Keeper
Of the Sacred Pipe
of the Oglala Sioux,
1872
