An Eagle’s Cry


An Eagle’s Cry

 Listen to me!

Listen!

I am the Indian voice.

Hear me crying out of the wind,

Hear me crying out of the silence.

I am the Indian voice.

Listen to me!

 

I speak for our ancestors.

They cry out to you from the unstill grave.

I speak for the children yet unborn.

They cry out to you from the unspoken silence.

 

I am the Indian voice.

Listen to me!

I am a chorus of millions.

Hear us!

Our eagle’s cry will not be stilled!

 

We are your own conscience calling to you.

We are you yourself

crying unheard within you.

 

Let my unheard voice be heard.

Let me speak in my heart and the words be heard

whispering on the wind to millions,

to all who care,

to all with ears to hear

and hearts to beat as one

with mine.

 

Put your ear to the earth,

and hear my heart beating there.

Put your ear to the wind

and hear me speaking there.

 

We are the voice of the earth,

of the future,

of the Mystery.

 Hear us!
