The Spirit of Mother Earth


Fields of green.
Cool clear water.
Smell the smoke of the campfire.

Only for the Spirits of Mother Earth.

Taste the sweet apple.
Feel the ground on your spine.
See the beauty of the night sky.

Only for the Spirits of Mother Earth.

Watch the Eagle flying overhead,
Hear the rustling of the leaves.
Drink of the living water.

Only for the Spirits of Mother Earth.

Gone are the mighty Buffalo.
The beauty of the Carolina Parakeet lost.
The Passenger Pigeon no longer flies in the clear blue skies.

Only Man did not listen.
Only Man did not care.

Only Man caused the end of so many.

Mother Earth cries as each one falls.
Mother Earth wraps it’s branches around it as it falls.
Mother Earth is the only one who remembers.

Only for the Spirits of Mother Earth do we still live here.
Only for the Spirits of Mother Earth do breath.
Only for the Spirits of Mother Earth do we still have a place to call home.

“Only for the Spirits of Mother Earth.”
“Only for the Spirits of Mother.”
“Only for the Spirits”
“Only for.”

“Only”
