Bull Head's Wife Mail-Orders in Morse Code

Photo of the real Diane Glancy

by Diane Glancy

I am cold Stop
I am cold Stop
I am thrashing with cold Stop
Send a blanket Stop
Cover me with a buffalo robe Stop
The river is a knife Stop
My horse is shivering Stop
I have frost for hair Stop
The snow geese are calling.
Their cries are the north wind Stop
I hear them say, frio frio blanco blanco Stop
I am freezing Stop
The air is full of birds Stop
I am the only tree on the prairie Stop
My teeth are ice Stop
The cries of the foxes are a white tower Stop
Hey yanno Stop
Send galoshes for the buffalo Stop
Send parka. Snow shoes Stop
The clouds cover the land with snow Stop
The wind is copied doublesided.
