An Irish Welcome

Céad Míle Fáilte friend and rover ...
Wherever you come from and whosoever you may be.
That's an Irish greeting and it means

you are welcome
a thousand times over.

I have much to learn and I begin today

This poem has been borrowed from a photo off Flickr.

I have much to learn. I begin today . . .

My Elders have all gone to see The Great Spirit.
One great beauty named Erna,
who was married by my German, French, American Grandfather,
I know not much from that union,
I have much to learn.
I begin today . . .

So much has been lost
Will I ever find my way?
Yes, I have, but I have much to learn.
I begin today . . .

I can feel the connection to The Great Spirit
that I share with all my children on earth.
Does it matter that I have missed so much time?
No... I have much to learn.
I begin today . . .

Right now is what my Creator has given me.
I cannot change the past, but can do with today what he guides me to do.
I will do the best I can with what I have.
I will continue to learn and live.

Maybe someday I will know some things to share,
so sacred rituals are not lost.
A Wisdom keeper someday I may be.
I have much to learn.
I begin today . . .
