what is the poem the about?

The poem laments the destruction of nature for man`s insatiable wants or
needs.
It also laments the fact that old America is gone and that it lies low with
the black feet and the pawnees.

I have just read the poem and i think it is a good boog poem because i
agrree to what the poet is talking about. The poet talks about how
modermnism and civilisation has the destroyed the beauty of nature. I
really like the fact that the poet noticed how beauty and peaceful nature
was before things started changing.

This poem has got to be the most simple yet powerful poem ever. I, myself,
grew up in Manchester and moved to pakistan a few weeks back, and I know
exactly what lindsay means, you know, about the swaying grass, the fragrent
flowers, the filtering of the sunlight. I, myself am 14 years old and all
that, but i definataly think this is the most captivating poem i have come
across in a long time.

Oh, man - I'm 31 years old, and I remember having to memorize this poem
back in the 8th grade. I have it memorized to this day!

This poem, I believe is about how things have changed. How the natural
pleasant environment has been disturbed by men now and that now after
interfering nature's system they themselves are not satisfied, even they
are 'lying low'. Disturbing nature disturbs men himself and nature's beauty
once ruined, is ruined for a long time. It takes a moment for people to
finish it all and then to get it all back, even decades are not enough!!
