Spirits of river and rill
Spirits of stream and sea
Spirits of waterfall and well
Spirits of pond and pool
Spirits of fjord and fen
Spirits of canal and creek
Spirits of brook and bay
Spirits of lake and lagoon
May we hear the hallowed gulf.
May we read the roaming rivers.
May we sense the salt waters.
May we listen to the lively lakes.
Rivers and rills are our relatives,
Oceans and seas our kith and kin.
Creeks and canals are our clan,
Springs and shallows our siblings.
May we use water wisely and well.
May our heartfelt plea be heard,
visions of a world beyond fossil fuels.
Hail to all waters of the world!
Contain our visions
and carry our dreams of hope
in all directions!
Hail to the earth and all living beings
