Through the dark foliage

On stretched goatskins

Came the invitation

Floating softly on the wind.

At first, understanding eluded me

Yet my pulse responded to its tempo

Which came across mingled with ululations

Wood on glass

And the chorus of the six-legged.

Suddenly I knew

That round the rising smoke

Danced the living and the dead.

My roots tapped the rhythmic call

And I now go to stamp my feet

In dialogue with my ancestors

And I shall dance to wood on glass,

The message on stretched goatskins

And the chorus of the six-legged,

Till Night lays down its weary head

And a new day is born.
