The recurrence of the seasons continue to encircle our lives,
As in the past gave celebrations to our ancestors.
Spring Equinox, Summer Solstice,
Fall Equinox, and Winter Solstice
Mark those passages in a yearly cycle all over the world.
We have learned to plant food and medicines
In accordance with the agricultural calendar;
We dance in a circle to celebrate the planting,
Harvesting, and the storing of food.
Buildings, monuments, and spiritual spaces;
Have been built by our ancient civilizations,
To align with the celestial movements that determine
The four seasons at the point of each transition.
