Kitlinuharmiut Song: ["And I Think Over Again"]


And I think over again
My small adventures
When from a shore wind I drifted out
In my kayak
And I thought I was in danger.

My fears,
Those small ones
That I thought so big,
For all the vital things
I had to get and to reach.

And yet, there is only
One great thing,
The only thing.
To live and see in huts and on journeys
The great day that dawns,
And the light that fills the world.



["And I Think Over Again"], a Kitlinuharmiut (Copper Eskimo) song, attributed to The Report of the Fifth Thule Expedition, 1921-1924, as quoted here.
