PRAYER OF THE WOODS

Yakushima-Japan-10-

PRAYER OF THE WOODS:

“I am the heat of your hearth on

the cold winter nights, the friendly

shade screening you from the summer sun,

and my fruits are refreshing draughts

quenching your thirst as you journey on.

“I am the beam that holds your house,

the board of your table, the bed in which

you lie, and the timber that builds your boat”

“I am the handle of your hoe,  the door of

your homestead, the wood of your cradle,

and the shell of your coffin”.

“I am the bread of kindness and the flower

of beauty”. Ye who pass by, listen to my prayer:

“Harm me not”.
