Some might judge it long, not me I was taken back reading of these men of bleeding hearts. The Rhyme of your story flowed well. The history you give as your relive the story in your poem. It was very descriptive of the cultural of both men's worlds. I enjoyed it well.

What a splendid poem. I like the slow pace and the story. The length is just right to incorporate what needs to be said. The imagery is powerful I was at the campfire with them. Thanks for sharing a good work.

This poem brings history alive and you remind us of how badly Native Americans were treated. Verses are smooth and
make an impact on the reader. I like the length of the poem, it is needed to tell the story.

Fantastic! Living in Montana and Wyoming my whole life and a grandmother who taught in the country schools of Montana, History has always been interesting for me.
I really enjoyed your way of telling a very good story.
I could smell the smoke from the burning wood of the fire and feel the heavyness that accompained the duo.
What a great way to tell the story.
I've been to the lightening struck rock where sitting bull had his vision of the "Battle Of the Little Big Horn".
Do you sell copies of your work?
Great job!

    This poem is included in my book "The Last Trail Ride" Which is a book of poems dedicated to the Old West. Most of them tell a story similar to this one. Copies can be obtained through Amazon, through Lulu.com, or through me if you want a signed copy. I really appreciate the great review and your interest in my work. Roger.

Not too long for me. I loved every word. A heart-wrenching story of our sad and cruel history told in verse. It makes me ashamed even though my relatives where not here yet. There were a couple of questionable rhymes and the rhythm was not right in a few stanzaa, but the poem is so engrossing I hate to even mention them. Darlene

    Yes, sometimes the best words aren't the most rhymical. I don't want to be a slave to meter. Thank you for the nice review. Rhymeman, the cowboy poet.

Hi Rhymeman,

This is not too long. It needs to be. How can

one sum up this huge battle without it being long poetry.

Great ending. Sad storyline. But it is true. What is

coup? I enjoyed this read. Warmly, Kathy

    A coup (pronounced coo) is a victory over someone. Thank you for the review and the generous 6. Drop in again. We'll have coffee down at the chuckwagon. Rhymeman, the cowboy poet.

reply by Pacinogal on 13-Apr-2009
    Thank you for explaining that. I didn't understand that part.

    Does the chuckwagon have tea? I don't drink coffee. LOL

    I'm glad I read it, the length didn't bother me at all.

    Warmly, Kathy

reply by the author on 13-Apr-2009
    I think I would get ribbed by the bunkhouse crew if I said I was having tea. However, I may be able to sneak some in. Rhymeman.

reply by Pacinogal on 13-Apr-2009
    OK, it's a deal. HA HA HA HA funny what you said.

    Warmly, Kathy

I wish this was for the contest, "Tell a story with a poem". you would win my friend. I love this work. May I have your permission to print it out? I save the best poetry, those that mean something to me, and am putting them in a scrape book. Yours is so very well done.

    I would like to think it would have a chance in a contest, but, alas, readers don't vote for long poetry. Most of the time they don't even read it, so I appreciate your great review. Sure, print it and drop back by when you get a chance. Rhymeman, the cowboy poet.

I love history, although the
tale of the Indians is such a
sad one -- I've seen many films
that were factual.
You've done a great job with this,
the words, rhythm and rhyme flow
smoothly throughout.

A pleasure to review, my friend.

Margaret.

Very, very well told story.

The rhytm, the pace, the tone...all worked to created a vivid picture of the encounter between the two men.

The acceptance that he exhibits is breath taking.

Rhymeman:
It always makes me sad when writers apologize for the length of their works. If it is good--and this is better than good--a reader should not complain. If it's not, the reader has the option of passing or continue reading and hoping it will get better. Having said that, on to the review:

This could be entitled "A Tale of Two Cultures" where one of the mightiest warriors of each come together, recognize themselves in each other, acknowledge and accept that for its comfort and companionship, then go their separate ways. It is interesting to note that Sitting Bull could return to his people, the cowboy could not.

This is really well done. Wish I had a six left to give you. What was done to the American Indians, actually to the North and South American Indians is one of the greatest genocides never properly told.

    I'll take the 6 in spirit. That is very complimentary. I do appreciate that you like my story poems. My mother was part Cherokee and I always had an interest in the Indian culture. As a boy I watched the B Westerns and loved them. I'm glad you found something that touched you. I know what you mean about the length. A lot of my poems get passed over because people want to review in a hurry and my poems are too long for their tastes. I'm glad you stopped by. Come back to the old bunkhouse any time. Rhymeman, the cowboy poet.
