Louise Laframboise- (1810- )



Like other Mothers, Louise Laframboise knew tears.

“I am losing my sons, grandsons, maybe more I fear.”

We are losing our homes, there is harm all around

We are becoming casualties; no peace to be found


The Battle of Duck Lake claimed Isidore Dumont

My son was shot while negotiating for our wants.

He left many who will grieve the loss of his care.

In sadness we stare, life looks so empty and bare.


My dear grandsons are dying to, Pierre now gone

And others in our clan battle the odds so wrong-

The Battle of Fish Creek is Gabriel’s military test

Waging the impossible with success; he’s the best!


Eduoard is fighting for life at Fish Creek, I’ve heard

Champagne, Carriere and Nault- I’ve heard no word

My life is on hold, it is hard to breath so ill at ease-

My babies are dying for orders impossible to please.
