"when the herd returns
we'll be asking for peace,
we'll be asking for a blessing,
we'll be making peace with our mothers,
when the herd returns
we'll share our bounty with those who didn't plant,
we'll eliminate poverty and hunger,
when the herd returns
we'll live with less,
we'll be singing to bring rain,
singing to heal our grief
singing to the moon.

from "On the Wing" by Margo Tamez from Naked Wanting (University of Arizona Press 2003).
