North American Dreaming: Return To Me The Old Ways

William Burkholder's poem acknowledges that we have much to learn from our grandfathers.

Dust of our grandfathers
Swirl in windy staircases
Revealing lessons of past lives
Calling us to walk and commune with
The old ways
To make them new once again
That life's river never ends
Never becomes dry and barren
Never loses its ability to quench man's thirst
Of insight and enlightenment
Listen to the wind, aye
The past, present, and future
Beckon, we come
To light the sage of knowledge and insight
Grandfathers come
Teach us well
I am ready to listen
Ready to drink
