DANCING WOLF

Where are you Alisgia Waya?

When the ko ga come, they do not speak of you
Where is it that you are alisgia waya?

Where is your soul waya?
Where is your spirit waya?
Where is your heart waya?

The ko ga do not speak of you
The u 'no le seeks you

My prayer to creator is that
The anidawehi watch over you

For, in my heart you will forever be
Dancing throughout eternity

Until then the u 'no le will be
Waiting to become one in Wudeliguhi!

Ah Ho!
