Poem: Ancestor Invocation

Ancestor Invocation

You have sown so we might reap,
you have fought for our peace.
You invented our culture,
gained our rights so we´d be free.
All the things that we take granted
once were won by sweat and toil.

Forebears, let us honor you
by using well your gifts to us!
Ancestors, let our lives
shine forth your works, and build on them;
respect your ash, but more important,
keep and feed your living flame.

(Michaela Macha)
