Mountains Speak

Osceola Birdman Waters

 

If only we knew the language of the mountains,

What storyís they could tell,

If only we knew the language of the rivers,

And feel the pain that they feel,

If only we knew the language of our mother earth,

What sadness would be felt?

 

If only we knew the language of our fellow man,

What understanding there would be?

When the environment talks, you should listen,

The message you should obey, No delay.

 

All of these precious and necessary parts of our mother,

Are like the heart and sole,

Of her existence, Our existence,

Of your existence, My existence,

To learn anotherís language,

To understand nature,

To be able too look and see,

To listen and hear,

To speak and be heard,

To be a warrior, Not of war.

 

To be able to fight for our mother the earth,

Is something special?

I know the language of the environment,

Itís universal.

My vision my dream.
