Prayer for a Summer Morning

I greet this Summer morning
With the peacefulness of a day of rest
After a day of fierce activity.
Peace in spirit
Peace in mind
Peace in body.
May this peace stay with me
All this day
And all this night.

I ask the blessing of  nine
Qualities of Summer:
Ephermeralness of dragonfly
Metamorphosis of butterfly
Beauty of flower
Resilience of a blade of grass
Persistence of seed
Growth of vine
Humour of crow
Laughter of raven
Patience of spider
May these nine blessings
Stay with me today
Until fall of night.
