It is Lovely Indeed

It is lovely indeed, it is lovely indeed.

I, I am the spirit within the earth.

The feet of the earth are my feet;

The legs of the earth are my legs.

The strength of the earth is my strength;

The thoughts of the earth are my thoughts;

The voice of the earth is my voice.

The feather of the earth is my feather;

All that belongs to the earth belongs to me;

All that surrounds the earth surrounds me.

I, I am the sacred works of the earth.

It is lovely indeed, it is lovely indeed.

Song of the Earth Spirit,

Navaho Origin Legend

When it is quiet spinning is a wonderfully meditative thing to do. This is a variety of cotton sliver spun and in the process of being spun. What you see are towels, just in their potential state, not woven yet! The skeins are three-ply organic cotton, spun to about a sport weight yarn. To dye or not to dye? It remains to be seen.
The poem is one from a book I purchased in Canyonlands Park in Utah. It seemed fitting at the time to have something to acknowledge the landscape in some way.
(This is my Cherry Matchless, really a wonderful wheel.)
