They await the sun rise.
The valley and meadows below them

Every creature of the Great Earth Mother awaits
The silence is loud.
|The old woman, an Elder loved
by all who know her,
draws the girl child under her blanket and
folds it around her little body.
They share the warmth of an
The Old One speaks softly as the sun rises
She speaks for happiness, health,
She sprinkles the golden corn pollen
|She looks into the awe filled eyes
of the child and says…
"Where do you begin and I end?
Where do you end and I begin?
We are one.
We are the Circle, the Circle is All.
My thoughts are inside your thoughts.
I live there now inside you, even
I am with you, we are Always.
|"Your Grandfathers and Grandmothers
are inside of you.
They are the blood that flows through you.
They speak to you. Learn to hear them.
They pass their wisdom on to help, through you.
All people have good medicines,
Only that which is pure is kept and passed on."
|"Listen and bring back the values.
Honour all life, all people,
You my child, are all these and more.
|"Tell the Children of the People
Remember us around the fires,
Tell them for us."
