ANCIENT MOTHER
A haunting Native American poem translated into Gaelic.

"This is a traditional Native American poem. In Dublin in 1984 a man told me that the sound made by the earth as it revolves is a musical note, a low G. So that is the key in which this song is written." (SMK)

Ancient Mother, I hear you calling,
Ancient Mother, I hear your song,
Ancient Mother, I feel your laughter,
Ancient Mother, I taste your tears.

(alternate ending lyrics):
Ancient Mother, I hear you calling,
Ancient Mother, I sing your song,
Ancient Mother, I join your laughter,
Ancient Mother, I dry your tears.
