In lieu of an abstract, here is a brief excerpt of the content:

  • Song to Tsuguntsalala
  • Raven Hail (bio)

Little Spirit Bird, I wonder would you sing for me? Little Spirit Bird, for I have gone a-wandering. Sing The Rising Sun, The Bright and Honey-Golden One. Little Spirit Bird, O let me hear you sing. Little Spirit Bird, in The Light of Day each day, Ask Her, Spirit Bird, to keep the dark away. When will I be One with The Nantahala Sun? Little Spirit Bird, O let me hear you say. Hear the echoes ring from Heaven there above us. Make The Mountain sing your litany of love. Sing an Evensong to keep me from all wrong. Give me by choice the voice of The Turtledove. Little Spirit Bird, I wonder could you pray for me? Tell The Midnight Sun I will change my way today. Tell me, what must I do to be truly like you? Little Spirit Bird, O let me hear you say. Little Spirit Bird, please let me hear you pray.
