Wise Woman poem

Wise Woman
"I knew a Wise Woman
And she said to me
That the river would mold me
And the wild wind would cool me
That the trickster the coyote
He would fool me
That father Sun would warm me
Mother Earth would clothe me
Grandmother Moon would greet me
And of the old ways she would teach me
Wise woman, she told me
To always walk lightly
Tread the Earth ever gently
Lovingly so preciously
And take from her sparingly
She said, to share with others
What you have learned from me
Be still and breathe, ever patiently
For the web of life
Has woven what is to be
But you must still chose
Your own path, you will see
And lastly, the Wise Woman said to me
To listen to the Wise one
That dwells within me
To walk my path in balance
Is too be free
More than just words
So mote it be"...

thanks for posting,..not really cool though, if you are sanctimonious,.. then just be real ! And I know what I am saying, and I am not saying it just because I want to tease I am saying this because I am hurt,..
I had to translate this from another language and these are my interpretations,.. but just sharing without caring is not the right way Tara,..
