(904) The great sea...- Uvavnuk
- The great sea
frees me, moves me,
as a strong river carries a weed.
Earth and her strong winds
move me, take me away,
and my soul is swept up in joy.
by Uvavnuk (19th C), an Iglulik Eskimo woman, translated from Danish
by W. Worster from Knud Rasmussen's Report of the Fifth Thule
Expedition, 1921-1924, Vol 7.
