Last verse adapted from Anna Richarson's 'The Oak Song'

lyrics

The Canoe

Young mother your time has come
Walk down the forest
By the river you’ve made
To the void
The void we all know and come from

Oh spirit child you are called
Row down the river
On your birch bark canoe made of love
And your mothers body
Her song is your sail

Call on the ancient memory guiding you here
I’m lighting candles for you drawing you near

Hmm I know you can hear
Take hold of his hand
He stands at the gate, he’s trembling
I sing the song to belong
The song to choose life
I sing it loud so you hear
You are loved completely!

You are the perfect embrace
To your mother’s heart
You fit perfectly in your father’s hands
We call in the song to welcome you

Call on the ancient memory guiding you here
Breath in your bloodline, song-line drawing you near

Young mother your time has come
Walk down the forest
By your barefooted land
You’ll travel for miles
His song is your sail
Her song is your sail

Oak oak oak of old,
Strong and brave as the story told
With leaves of green and nuts of brown
In autumn he wears a golden crown
