Grandfather Great Spirit

Grandfather Great Spirit
All over the world the faces
of living ones are alike.

With tenderness they have
come up out of the ground.

Look upon your children
that they may face the winds
And walk the good road to the Day of Quiet.

Grandfather Great Spirit
Fill us with the Light.
Give us the strength to understand,
And the eyes to see.

Teach us to walk the soft Earth
as relatives to all that live.

On Understanding

“Grown-ups never understand anything by themselves, 
and it is tiresome for children to be always and forever 
explaining things to them.”  

Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
