We Thank You, the Creator

What secrets do the feathers tell

As they waft through the silent air


Their story is one that is very old

Messages that the shadow ones hold


They appear before you

As they appear before me


While upon their flight they did fall

To the earth as they touch us all


When to our heart your spirit did speak

That in which you taught us to be


Oh Creator your breath I have seen

As it burst forth into a mist


From the nostrils of the buffalo in a dream

A strong and great life giver he has been


For all of us on this path that we do walk

Our provider is behind us and stands tall


In his strength and wisdom we will remain

As he cares for us, we do the same


Care for this feather that falls so soft

It is the gentle nature of the spirit


That covers the heart of the big and the small

As is the buffalo, the spirit protects us all...


Ah Ho!
