Reel 280, Item 2
Once upon this very ground Indian children played around.
Overhead the sky was blue; Under foot the green grass grew.
And when playing they could hear Birdies in the treetops near.
Huts made out of wood or skin For the homes that they live in.
And when playing they were dressed, They wore blankets for their best.
If these children could be here This very day,
We would show them our nice playthings And would teach them how we play.
