Earth, Teach me to Remember

Earth, teach me stillness
as the grasses are stilled with light.

Earth, teach me suffering
as old stones suffer with memory.
Earth, teach me humility
as blossoms are humble with beginning.

Earth, Teach me caring
as the mother who secures her young.

Earth, teach me courage
as the tree which stands alone.

Earth, teach me limitation
as the ant which crawls on the ground.

Earth, teach me freedom
as the eagle which soars in the sky.

Earth, teach me resignation
as the leaves which die in the fall.
Earth, teach me regeneration
as the seed which rises in the spring.

Earth, teach me to forget myself
as melted snow forgets its life.

Earth, teach me to remember kindness
as dry fields weep in the rain.

John Yellow Lark
