The Cinnamon Cob Dance. Lyrics & Poster by Willi Paul.
Initiation by sacredpermaculture.net
Our swing dance in the mud
Measuring, carrying, dumping, folding
Packing, balling, throwing, spreading, smoothing
Teaching in the round – as a group
Re-using sticks, busted sidewalks, tired dirt, memories from the sand box?
Our – live – future – back – play
Come in the circle with communal food
The transmutation of soils and water and straw – EcoAlchemy Now!
The smiles and dirty feet on the tarps, the ritual of the work dance
Silly Potrero Hill wine spill!
Hands in the cob, an ancient rite renewed
Building a new bench world
Sacred are the bonds that form and last between class, teachers and the land
Sacred is choosing the long view, re-loving Nature’s spirit, the shared view
We are growing local heroes here
* * * * * * *
We are riting new myths in the mud over here: open myth source – reservoir
