Song Description

Likening a person's life to a tapestry woven by the Great Spirit in the sky.

Story Behind the Song

Inspired by the Tewa Indian poem "Song of the Sky Loom".

Lyrics

ASK THE WEAVER

Gentle spirit looking to be born,
Watch the sunrise brighten in the sky,
Empty is your tapestry at dawn,
Mix your yarns, and fling the colors high,
You shall not reach the end too soon,
Ask the weaver with her loom.

Mother Earth so solid for a base,
Fringe it with the warm spring rain of tears,
Border with the stading rainbow Hope,
Weave your pattern upward through the years,
You shall not reach the end too soon,
Ask the weaver with her loom.

From the past the wind blows other yarns,
Older joys and sorrows take their part,
Weave anew the tapestry each round,
Dim the lights, the play's about to start,
A wail, a dance, how goes the tune?
Ask the weaver with her loom.
