For Those of You Who Think Your Life Has No Meaning


Planting Invitation Song

I have made a footprint, a sacred one.

I have made a footprint, through it the blades push upward.

I have made a footprint, through it the blades radiate.

I have made a footprint, over it the blades float in the wind.

I have made a footprint, over it I bend the stalk to pluck the ears.

I have made a footprint, over it the blossoms lie gray.

I have made a footprint, smoke arises from my house.

I have made a footprint, there is cheer in my house.

I have made a footprint, I live in the light of the day.
