In celebration, many folk people,
Still dance in ceremonial thanksgiving, passages;
Spring welcome to the earth for sustaining life.
For traditional cultures still follow
The paths set by ancestors;
Back to the ways of original instructions,
Brought by intermediaries between the Creator and humans.
Dancers are seen in the first art on stones;
For reverence is shown the rhythm of prayer, ritual and dance
All over the world.
