Search for the Real

Men of the High North, the wild sky is blazing,

Islands of opal float on silver seas;

Swift splendors kindle, barbaric, amazing;

Pale ports of amber, golden argosies.

Ringed all around us the proud peaks are glowing;

Fierce cheifs in council, their wigmam the sky;

Far, far below us the big Yukon flowing,

Like threaded quicksilver, gleams to the eye.
