Part II. Longfellow's' Hiawatha ' (The Departure)
IAGOO, the great boaster,' has been wandering far afield. He returns and tells of what he has seen-a great canoe with a hundred warriors, coming to the Red Man's country. ' Painted white were all their faces,' ho assures his incredulous hearers, who laugh and will not believe him.
Then Hiawatha, who has not scoffed, says,
' True is all lagoo tells us ; I have seen- it in a vision.' This is the first of the extracts we are now to hear.
The second extract, ' 'Beautiful is the sun, 0 strangers,' is Hiawatha's welcome to the white men, who prove to be missionaries. They are hospitably received.
Then Hiawatha says to Nokomis, the old nurse :
' I am going, 0 Nokomis,
On a long and distant journey, To the portals of the sunset,' and leaves the guests to her care. He goes into the village, and repeats to his friends his farewell-' I am going, 0 my people, on a long and distant journey ' ; and bidding them listen to the white men's message, leaves his home and kindred on his journey ' into the fiery sunset.'
