Thank You for the Harvest and the Healing
Music: Maria zart von edler Art.
|Thank you for the harvest and the healing,
Health, wealth, hunger, all the goods of Earth,
All that we inherited at birth,
Need, joy, love, pain, grief, desire, feeling.
Know that we are grateful for our being,
Singing silent praises in our hearts,
Giving in the temples of our arts
Invocations to the act of seeing.
Vain though it may be to think you're hearing,
In us there is an ancient urge to speak,
Not for any answers that we seek,
Glad just to converse -- like love, like breathing.
