She had sent through all the village
Messengers with wands of willow,
As a sign of invitation,
As a token of the feasting;
And the wedding-guests assembled,
Clad in all their richest raiment,
Robes of fur and belts of wampum,
Splendid with their paint and plumage,
Beautiful with beads and tassels..
He was dressed in shirt of doeskin,
White and soft and fringed with ermine,
All inwrought with beads of wampum,..
