Prayer of the Woods

Prayer of the Woods
From The Portuguese

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 on 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.
