Do you ask why he should fight? It was his country...
But after the Tongue there were no herds to be hunting:
He cut the knots of the tail and he led them in:
He cried out, "I am Crazy Horse! Do not touch me!"
There were many soldiers between and the sun glinting...
Yes, it is all in the name—the pathos and the desperation,
the tragedy and the savagery, the hint of how
His heart would be big with the love he had for that country
And all the game he had seen and the mares he had ridden.
It concludes that Crazy Horse had made the country richer for
his "spirited" defiance.
