To this hearth which is a heart, welcome.
Welcome to our hearts. Welcome to our breath
....seeking to be song.
May those without a place tonight
....find welcome here.
May those without a tongue be brought to utterance.
Welcome to the stone that has no mouth to cry with.
Welcome to the leaf that trembles on the edge
Welcome to the owl's high lonely questioning.
May our ears catch answers.
May the Word which hovers above our heads
May the song which crosses
between the living and the dead
be part of what we sing.
Welcome to the fabulous Names of things.
