Oh great spirit, lay me down upon the green meadows.
There beside the still and clear waters.
Create a fresh pathway for the soft voices of those unheard to safely travel.
Fill up the ever widening space in the valley with pure hope, joy, and the sweet blossoming of laughter.
Enjoin both young and old in new beginnings, unburden us from past ills, bad judgment, and shameful behavior.
Liberate us all from our drunken single-minded consciousness, imbue us to see more broadly with our hearts, and at last to walk lightly upon this earth in a synchronized love relationship with all living things.
