     One giant shout came hoarsely through
The clangor and the charging cry,
     Just as across the scattering gloom,
Red as the naked hand of Doom,
     The English volley hurtled by—
The arm—the voice of Metacom!—
     One piercing shriek--one vengeful yell,
Sent like an arrow to the sky,
     Told when the hunter-monarch fell!
