If you don’t sow the seeds
Nothing can grow
If you won’t alight the fire
We shall all grow old in the cold
If you dare not raise the sun
We must live in the blackened night
If the moon then forgets to rise
How do we both see our way in the dark?
If you cannot and will not tend to the land
We shall watch all we have built crumble and die
If the animals are unfed
There will be no food for us all
If the signs are ignored
We must all perish and then fall
If the plants are not watered
This valley will cease to breath
If you forget to feed the birds
Then no longer can they sing
If the flowers refuse to open
What will there be to see?
If the bread isn’t made
Then the people will grow weak
If the eggs do not hatch
New life cannot exist
If you toss away the gift heart of truth
A chance may not be found to put it right
If the god’s close their ears
Who will listen to us speak?
If the wheels become trapped
If the Earth pauses on its turn
Will you take your seat in life then?
Sweet sacred one?
