Litany














O true Elder,
O true watcher of the people,
O true gain of wisdom,
O spirit of times past,
Remember!

O only illuminator
of the three dimensions of time,
(child, parent, elder)
Re-light!

O smoldering smudging burning,
O lighted flame of future vision,
Reignite!

O Sound advice from depth of night,
O Spirit of the ancient’s word,
O Dreamer of the life beyond,
O Wind of legend north,
O Teacher of the ways of earth,

Redirect!
