Question

From the ends of the Earth my name is told

Where new land meets water and seasons are cold.

My looks are scarred with the lines of a story;

Of marriage and death and legends of glory.

I am but a branch from a proud family tree,

Or a standard of shame to stain history.

My tongue remains muted, but if closely you look:

The summary plot of an unwritten book.

Look to the sky to read a tall tale,

Now guess what I am,

It’s easy, don’t fail.

Totem Pole

From the ends of the earth, my name is told: North and South "pole"

Where "new" land meets water and seasons are cold:

Only in the New World in the Pacific northwest were totem poles found.

My looks are scarred with the lines of story:

The "faces" and designs on a totem pole are carved to depict many things, including important events, marriages, battles, etc. It can also be a short history of a family tree. There were also "Shame Poles" that marked shameful deeds by a family or person.
