SilentRebel83 - The Seven Beasts (Tongan translation)

English

The Seven Beasts

I follow the ancient path
of bison hooves imprinted on sacred hills
 
The spider, who heeds my distress,
Stitches my wounds with her palps of needles and her silvery silk
 
I hear a procession of elephants
Their majesty, our reverence; their memory, our moral compass
 
The dragonfly tells me that it is safe here
I take in a sip from the river
 
In the birth of night, the owl wards me from danger
Its eyes ever present as talons grasp my shoulder
 
The lone wolf approaches when I am led astray
His howl directs my gaze
 
And the Great Bear, whose hide shrouds within seven stars,
Guides me to the unwavering star
