"Just like the butterfly, I too will awaken in my own time." ~Deborah Chaskin
And it's up to us
To re-enchant this planet Earth
We are the elves and the giants
We are the shining ones
Daughters of the Moon
And Sons of the Sun
We are the shapeshifters
We are the mysterious light
Shrouded in mists
At the dawn of our time
And it's up to us to re-enchant
This living planet
Up to us to midwife
At our own rebirth
Up to us to send our dead
Along their ancient pathways
To the future
Up to us to re-enchant this
Living planet Earth
It's up to us to break the spell
That steals the colors
From the world
And leaves it lifeless
It was our spell - we can break it
It's up to us to break the spell
That steals the magic
From the wind and rain
It is our spell - we can break it
We will dance the magic dance
And our bodies will remember
We will sing the magic songs
And together we'll remember
How to live together
How to love each other
How to ride the eagle
How to call the deer
—Will Ashe Bason
