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!
