Chief Dan George


The beauty of the trees,

the softness of the air,

the fragrance of the grass,

Speaks to me.

The summit of the mountains,

the thunder of the sky,

the rhythm of the sea,

speaks to me.

The faintness of the stars,

the freshness of the morning,

the dewdrop on the flower,

speaks to me.

The strength of fire,

the taste of salmon,

the trail of the sun

and the life that never goes away,

they speak to me

and my heart soars.

  1. This is wonderful. I love these poems so much that I have ordered that Earth prayers book you recommended.
