August, twas the twenty-fifth,
Seventeen houndred forty-six,
The Indians did in ambush lay,


Lucy Terry Prince
this is beautiful, not only do you get an insight on what exactly was going on at the time you also can imagine how she must've felt when the ambush happened, you an also see how she saw the Indians when she calls the 'creatures', she strips them of their human nature, and names them creatures for what they did was inhumane. they had lost their humanity

What a delightful piece that showed the rough and tumble life that they dealt with in the early development of the new land. Life then wasn't easy, for anyone.

I'm impressed with how Lucy wrote and worded her poem. Her detail for brief descriptions give you a visual of what this ambush was like. I also wondered where did she get the skills and training needed to write a poem when during those times you weren't suppose to have reading and writing skills.
