Leader:

Inside each raindrop swims the sun.

Inside each flower breathes the moon.

Participants:

Inside me dwell ten million stars,

Leader:

One for each of my ancestors:

Participants:

The elk, the raven, the mouse, the man,

The flower, the coyote, the lion, the fish.

Leader:

Ten million different stars am I,

Participants:

But only one spirit connecting all.
