This poem is from Alice's viewpoint about her love for Uncas, so all you Uncas/Alice fans get excited! ;)

Unfortunately, I don't own anything remotely related to the movie The Last of the Mohicans, but I did write this poem. No copywright infringement intended so please don't sue me. ;)


Only the Wind Knows

Here I lie beneath the sheet

Of sifting fallen leaves

And only the wind knows

Only the wind...and thee

I feared thee once upon a time

Feared on the day we met

And only the wind knows

Only the wind...and me

But that soon changed within my soul

When my soul warmed to thee

Now only the wind knows

Only the wind...and me

I loved thee, Uncas, dearly so

But couldn't show 't to thee

And only the wind knows

Only the wind...and me

I knew 't 'neath the waterfall

when thou clung fast to me

Now only the wind knows

Only the wind...and me

The water rushed above our heads

And thou clung fast to me

Now only the wind knows

Only the wind...and we

I felt thy heartbeat 'neath my hand

Thy hand upon my hair

And only the wind knows

Only the wind...and we

When Magua took me from the falls

My heart feared much for thee

But only the wind knows

Only the wind...and me

Yet still I knew thou'd come for me

Thou'd come and set me free

Now only the wind knows

Only the wind...and me

I hoped upon the mountain top

Hoped much to be set free

But only the wind knows

Only the wind...and thee

And then thou came I saw thee there

Thou not so far from me

Now only the wind knows

Only the wind...and we

I saw love burning in thy eyes

Burning there for me

Now only the wind knows

Only the wind...and we

Thou fought and many braves did fall

Beneath thy knife and gun

Yet only the wind knows

Only the wind...and we

Thou fought with Magua on the stone

He struck thee o'er and o'er

Now only the wind knows

Only the wind...and we

Our eyes locked long over the space

Locked long thine eyes on me

And only the wind knows

Only the wind...and we

Then Magua snatched thee from my heart

Tearing my heart from me

And only the wind knows

Only the wind...and me

He flung thee o'er the mountain's edge

And my slain heart with thee

Now only the wind knows

Only the wind...and me

The mountains echoed back thy voice

Back thy voice to me

Now only the wind knows

Only the wind...and me

I gazed upon the depths below

And grief didst beckon me

Though only the wind knows

Only the wind...and me

Magua held his hands outstretched

His hands outstretched for me

And only the wind knows

Only the wind...and he

I turned my head away from him

Away my head from he

Now only the wind knows

Only the wind...and he

I looked my last upon that world

Upon that misery

And only the wind knows

Only the wind...and me

I leapt from off that wondrous height

Leapt off to follow thee

Now only the wind knows

Only the wind...and me

Long time I fell within the depths

Long time I fell to thee

But only the wind knows

Only the wind...and me

Now here I'll lie beside my love

by thee eternally

And only the wind knows

Only the wind

Only the wind...and thee.
