So hear the tones of cedar flow,

Reminding us from place afar,

A gift of art from Navaho,

a sea of sound — a reservoir. 

The breathy notes pushed from the wood

with airy tones in triple trill,

is calling us to brotherhood

that bathes the heart when all is still. 

Listen as it calls the eagle,

the bear, the deer and buffalo,

brothers of the kingdoms regal,

sister spirits of long ago. 

These ancient sounds from wooden voice,

in sentient wait below the bark,

now sing in beauty to rejoice —

returning song to Meadowlark. 

— from The Diné by Rolland G. Smith
