Words at the End of a Storytelling
You people, you've heard enough stories. You'll need stories all of your lives, but too many at one time, and your ears will grow long from listening to too many stories. And you'll have bad luck with rattlesnakes.
While you're alive, do something important. Learn the flowers. The way of the deer in the brush, the way of the birds in the trees and the sky. Learn the dances of the people and the music of the river. Dance the rhythms of the earth.
You people, find your stories, and share them.
You people, keep the world going! Forever. And ever. That is all.
