Kira Lorraine welcome to your home. You've got the love of your family And a crib to call your own. May you have fire in your heart And the stars in your eyes. May you have the patience of your Mother And your Father's tender sighs.
Kira Lorraine look around your world. May troubles never find you And a peaceful life unfurl. May your spirit soar through life And be proud when you are grown. May you learn wisdom from your elders And find a good man of your own.
Western Washington give this child a home Give her your forests for her brothers And the lakes to call her own Give her Salmon for her plate Give her the eagle soaring high Give her the West Wind for her mentor In the Western Washington sky.

poetry is to the heart what food is to the body and God is to the soul
