National Museum of the American Indian

From the brow of Hiawatha
Gone was every trace of sorrow,
As the fog from off the water,
As the mist from off the meadow.

George Gustav Heye Center of the National Museum of the American Indian, Alexander Hamilton US Custom House, Bowling Green, Manhattan, New York, New York

With a smile of joy and triumph,
With a look of exultation,
As of one who in a vision
Sees what is to be, but is not,
Stood and waited Hiawatha.

From Henry Wadsworth Longfellow’s The Song of Hiawatha (1855)
