Water's easy in the past-land,
where the ice banked high and snowswept
where the ice shone blue like water,
polished hard by blowing snow.

Fire was hard, but if we had it
Water came from every iceshard,
trickled in the heated igloo,
sculpting to a frozen flow.

Food came harder, when the dogs strained
travelling from trap to sealhole,
looking for the hidden places
hoping meat would linger there.

Food for dogs, or no more travel,
Food for men, or no more hunters,
Food for women, or no family,
Lastly came the food for children,

(And the old were food for bear.)
