lyrics

In the forest, where the river’s small,
A lonely tribe, brave and proud,
Celebrates their newest member
Brought into the world naked and loud.

Mom asks the leader, old and wise,
The secrets for a life fulfilled,
So the baby can grow happy
Honest, loved, healthy, and strong willed.

"Pray to the winds", is the answer,
"For the six carry a blessing,
A lesson brought in each of them
A gift, a token, a message."

"For the north wind brings the harsh war
Keeping our people fierce and strong.
And the south wind carries winter
The cold that makes our lives so long."

"From the east blows the ocean wind
Keeping us quick, fleet, and nimble
The western wind opens the sky
Enriching our minds with symbols."

"The storm wind blows from everywhere
Unpredictable, erratic
Teaching us to accept our fate
Wise, calm, and also pragmatic."

"And the most important of all:
The wind that blows inside the soul
As for where it blows, right or wrong,
Holds secret to a life made whole."

"Pray to the winds", is the answer,
"For the six carry a blessing,
A lesson brought in each of them
A gift, a token, a message."

"The most important of them all:
The wind that blows inside the soul
As for where it blows, right or wrong,
Holds secret to a life made whole."
