The Loss of Our Language by Unknown

Translated from Comanche by Juanita Pahdopony. There are fewer than 100 fluent Comanche speakers in the world today.
A long time ago
when animals
could talk,
the language
of the people
was spoken,
sweet-like sugar.
Today, few speak
its loss-a bitter lesson.
That is all.
