An Earth Prayer


 
My brother the star,
My Mother the Earth,
My sister the Moon -
To my life give beauty,
To my body give strength,
To my work give goodness,
To my house give peace
To my spirit give truth
To my elders give wisdom –
We must pray for strength
We must pray to come together,
Pray to the weeping Earth,
Pray to the trembling waters
and to the wandering rain
We must pray to the whispering Moon,
Pray to the tip-toeing stars
and to the hollering Sun
