About the song
For a winter solstice ceremony in Mendocino, CA, I was asked to write a song to call in the South on the medicine wheel, so I did.
Lyrics
Call to the South

I call to the South to the land of fertility
I call to the South to the land of the sun
I call to the South to the Amazon basin
I call to the South where the rivers are warm

I call to the South to the land of our origins
I call to the South to the tribes of our past
I call to the South on the plains of East Africa
I call to the South where the desert is vast

Come and inspire us
Come and require us
to be more truly ourselves than before
to be reborn on the sun’s farthest shore

I call to the South to the land of nativity
I call to the South to the land of the green
I call to the South out of northern captivity
I call to the South and the lands in between

I call to the South to all species unclassified
So varied and various, insect and bird
I call to the South for rare flowers to clothe the bride
Preparing her way by the truth of the word

Come and inspire us
Come and require us
to be more truly ourselves than before
to be reborn on the sun’s farthest shore
