Spirit Prayer

Evening settles drumbeat starts,
Single cadence in the dark
Hushed tones whispered on the wind
Rising feelings then begin
Dancer comes in cape of black
Feathers shine and shells do clack
Beginning slowly turning round
Jumping quickly across the ground
Call the spirits, sing the song
Hopeful prayer and hearts that long
For peaceful seasons, children many
Sickness gone and crops a plenty
Sunrise beckons shafts of light
Dancer slows, becomes as night
Fading slowly in the dark
To shield himself from daylight stark
New day wakens, Bells now chime
Hope is given one more time....
