I, nature, give to you, to be yours for ever and ever, the right to the free enjoyment of this world.
I give to you the years that are before you, and the world that is about you.
I give to you, the sun by day and the Moon and Stars by night, with the power to wake as the Earth rolls into light of the light of the Sun, and the power to sleep when the night comes.
I give to you the beauty of the Earth in the golden hour of dawn, with the vision of the Sun as it climbs above the hills, with the glow of fire across the meadow and the sparkle of the river that runs past. The sight of the new stirring of the life of the world, the sound of all moving things that praise their Maker, the feeling that uplifts the heart as the light breaks on another day, are yours.
