Let Us See

by Pawnee (Anonymous)

English version by Daniel G. Brinton


Let us see, is this real,
Let us see, is this real,
Let us see, is this real,
This life I am living?
Ye gods, who dwell everywhere,
Let us see, is this real,
This life I am living?

-- from The Sky Clears: Poetry of the American Indians, Edited by A. Grove Day

Commentary by Ivan M. Granger

To contemplate is to ask on some level, "Is this real?"

But how many people actually start by proclaiming, "Let us see"...? Without the determination to see what is real, the question of what is real echoes helplessly.

So -- Let us see!
