Everything an Indian does is in a circle,
and that is because the Power of the World
always works in circles, and everything
tries to be round. ~•~ The sky is round
and the earth is round like a ball,
and so are all the stars.
The wind, in its greatest power, whirls.
Birds make their nests in circles,
for theirs is the same religion as ours.
~•~ The sun comes forth and goes down again in a circle. The moon does the same, and both are round. Even the seasons form a great circle in their changing, and always come back again to where they were. ~•~ The life of a man is a circle from childhood to childhood, and so it is in everything where power moves.
