All Is A Circle Within Me

All is a circle within me.
I am ten thousand winters old.
I am as young as a new-born flower.
I am a buffalo in its grave.
I am a tree in bloom.

All is a circle within me.
I have seen the world through an eagle's eyes.
I have seen it through a gopher's hole.
I have seen the world on fire
and the sky without a moon.

All is a circle within me.
I have gone into the world and out again.
I have gone to the edge of the sky.
Now all is at peace within me.
Now all has a place to come home.
