In the belly of the snake a drum song

The bull elk appears

Snake lifts head looks in wonder

A great lifting of the earth is the elk

It is a great thing to be lifted

The earth shall be lifted

Lifted into great elk forms

To dance with hooves on the drumskin of the earth

And leap up with horns toward the powers of the day

I will call upon great powers with the song of an elk

I will rise as a snake with the song of a snake

I will rise into dancing upon the earth

Into drumming upon the night

Into lifting up horns toward the quiet of dawn

The bull elk snorts and leaps

Earth power is lifted

Eye of snake looks up

It is a good day
