As I Walk in Beauty

   Thu, February 1, 2007 - 9:21 PM
In beauty, may I walk.
All day long, may I walk.
Through the returning seasons, may I walk.

Beauty will I possess again.
Beautiful birds...
Beautiful joyful birds...

On the trail marked with pollen, may I walk.
With grasshoppers about my feet, may I walk.
With dew about my feet, may I walk.

With beauty, may I walk.
With beauty before me, may I walk.
With beauty behind me, may I walk.
With beauty above me, may I walk.
With beauty all around me, may I walk.

In old age, wandering on a trail of beauty, lively, may I walk.
In old age, wandering on a trail of beauty, living again, may I walk.

It is finished in beauty.
It is finished in beauty.
It is finished in beauty.

What a beautiful prayer. I would like to share one with you if i may?

My Grandfather is the Fire
My Grandmother is the Wind
The Earth is my Mother
The Great Spirit is my Father
The world stopped at my birth and laid itself at my feet

And I shall swallow the Earth whole when I die,
and the Earth and I will be One.
