An Elder’s Prayer - Bai T. Moore

Oh great Spirit of the forest,
I have nothing in my hand
But a chicken and some rice
It’s the gift of all our land
Bring us sunshine with the rain
So the harvest moon may blow
Save my people from all pains;
When the harvest time is done
We will make a feast to you.

Bai T. Moore [Full name Bai Tamia Johnson Moore] (1916 – 1988) Liberia
