Four Days
C. 2008 Jackie Tice/Saja Maka Music (BMI)

Day One
Eagle comes
His gesturing
On dusty wings
Sends waves of hope
Prayers that soak
The Mother Earth
Restore the birth
That first gave life
To sound and sight

A Spirit Has Been Found

Cloudy white
Awake the Flight
Of thunderbirds
And bears that turn
On whim of wind
When of him
At every door
In many forms
Both big and small
Ancestors call

A Spirit Has Been Found

Day Two
Four pairs of hooves
Approach the gate
Perfect mates
From nose to tail
This mare and male
Have love to spare
And share and care
Upon this day
Itís time to pray

A Spirit Has Been Found

Counter clockwise
Circling brown eyes
Time is lost
The worlds are crossed
Earth and heaven
Front and rear end
Bless this fast
First day to last
Sunka Wakan
Gallop on

A Spirit Has Been Found

Day Three
On bended knee
Old soul travels
Sand and gravel
Mixed with tears
Find the fears
Alive in tall grass
Hidden past
Stone unturned
Survive the burn

A Spirit Has Been Found

Feather pierces
Prayers and tears
And skin rejoices
Drum and voices
Sing the way
Wo Hay Ho Yo Hay
Feel the beat
On dancing feet
Sacred Red Road
Call it home

A Spirit Has Been Found

Day Four
The silent door
Breaks open wide
Release the tide
Of faith and patience
Obedience
True insurance
Hope, endurance
In God we trust
And trust we must

A Spirit Has Been Found

Revive the love
Youíre dreaming of
Be the peace
Of which you speak
Reach your hand
Child, woman, man
Cross generations
My relations
Touch inside
You heart will be your guide
Touch inside
Your heart will be surprised
