Dare to touch Earth Mother with your heart That you might hear echoes of ancient wisdom Allow Wind Spirits to caress your face And sense freedom not born of material possessions.
Grandfather ~We return thanks to our mother, the earth, which sustains us. We return thanks to the rivers and streams, which supply us with water, to all herbs, which furnish medicines for the cure of our diseases, to the moon and stars, which have given to us their light when the sun was gone, to the sun, that has looked upon the earth with a beneficent eye. Lastly, to the Great Spirit, in Whom is embodied all goodness, and Who directs all things for the good of Her children. ~ Iroquois —
