Hear Me ... Earth Prayer
Grandfather, Great Spirit, once more behold me on earth and lean to hear my feeble voice. You lived first, and you are older than all need, older than all prayer. All things belong to you -- the two-legged, the four-legged, the wings of the air, and all green things that live.
"You have set the powers of the four quarters of the earth to cross each other. You have made me cross the good road and road of difficulties, and where they cross, the place is holy. Day in, day out, forevermore, you are the life of things."
Hey! Lean to hear my feeble voice.
At the center of the sacred hoop
You have said that I should make the tree to bloom. With tears running,
O Great Spirit, my Grandfather,
With running eyes I must say
The tree has never bloomed Here I stand, and the tree is withered.
Again, I recall the great vision you gave me. It may be that some little root of the sacred tree still lives.
Nourish it then
That it may leaf
And fill with singing birds! Hear me, that the people may once again
Find the good road
And the shielding tree."
- Black Elk, Holy Man of the Oglala Sioux, 1863-1950
