Rained All Day

from Songs of Lewis & Clark by Sara Bouchard



Clark: November 11th Monday 1805

A hard rain all the last night,
dureing the last tide
the logs on which we lay was all on float.

The wind verry high from the S. W.
with most tremendious waves
brakeing with great violence against the Shores.

12 oClock 5 Indians came down in a canoe,
[they] Crossed the river (5 miles wide)
through the highest waves I ever Saw a Small vestles ride.

[It] rained all day.

the great quantites of rain
which has loosened the Stones on the hill Sides,
and the Small Stones fall down upon us,
[and] our canoes at one place at the mercy of the waves,
our baggage in another.

And our Selves and party Scattered on floating logs
and Such dry Spots as can be found on the hill Sides,
and Crivices of the rocks.

12 oClock 5 Indians came down in a canoe,
Those Indians are Certainly the best Canoe navigaters I ever Saw.

[The] rain falling in torrents,
[It] rained all day.
