Marigold Hiawatha NCERT Book Class 4



The Scholar’s



Hiawatha was a young Red Indian boy. He lived

with his old grandmother, Nokomis, in a wigwam.

Nokomis taught Hiawatha about the wonders

around them. She told him about the stars, the

trees, the insects, the birds, the animals, and

many other things.

Hiawatha grew up to love them all. He could

talk to the birds and the animals, and they to him.

                                                         Then the little Hiawatha

                                                         Learned of every bird its language,

                                                         Learned their names and all their secrets,

                                                         How they built their nests in Summer,

                                                         Where they hid themselves in Winter,

                                                         Talked with them whene’er he met them,

                                                         Called them ‘Hiawatha’s chickens.

Of all beasts he learned the language,

Learned their names and all their secrets,

How the beavers built their lodges,

Where the squirrels hid their acorns,

How the reindeer ran so swiftly,

Why the rabbit was so timid,

Talked with them whene’er he met them,

Called them ‘Hiawatha’s Brothers’.”
