Everything the Power
Everything the Power of the World does
is done in a circle. The sky is round,
and I have heard that the earth is round
like a ball, and so are all the stars.
The wind, in its greatest power, whirls.
Birds make their nests in circles,
for theirs is the same religion as ours.
The sun comes forth and goes down again
in a circle. The moon does the same,
and both are round. Even the seasons
form a great circle in their changing,
and always come back again to where they were.
The life of man is a circle from childhood to childhood,
and so it is in everything where power moves.

Black Elk was a famous medicine man and jester of the Oglala Lakota (Sioux) tribe. He is also known to be the second cousin of Native American war leader, Crazy Horse. From an early age, Black Elk experienced visions that many attributed to illness. At age twelve, he participated in the Battle of Little Big Horn as well as the Wounded Knee Massacre in 1890. After the death of his first wife, who was Catholic, Black Elk converted to Christianity and became a spiritual leader to his people. Not until the end of his life did he reveal his amazing life to author John Neihardt who translated the above verse.
