An Arch Druidess’ Prayer
Help me to be wise enough to listen to the wind.
To be able to hear the wisdom of trees
To be able to see news in the flight of migrating birds
To be able to read the way in the movement of a stream.
Let me walk under the stars and hear their music
Let me see by the light of people’s hearts
Let me find the path through the forest of confusion
Let me never think I’m better than the smallest creature
Let me never think I’m less than the largest one.
Let me be secure in the love of the ones who are important to me
Let me fearless for those I need to defend
Let me be wise enough to know when to lead
And wise enough to know when someone else should.
And wise enough when to get out of the way.
Let me know that I can trust what I feel
And what I know and let me walk in the right direction
Whatever that direction is.
