Mother's Song to a Baby
by author unknown

First
This little baby
Has been given life
Through the medicine man's song
Through the medicine man's prayer
For this baby the songs
Have been sung

Next
The baby's mother
Has taken care of him
With the songs of the rain gods

This
Little baby
In his cloud-cradle
Was watched over by his mother

It Was
Nice
How the clouds
Came up like foam
And
As if he
Was among them
This little baby
Was cared for.
