Pawnee Song - Let Us See

Let us see, is this real,
Let us see, is this real,
Let us see, is this real,
This life I am living?
Ye gods, who dwell everywhere,
Let us see, is this real,
This life I am living?


-- from The Sky Clears: Poetry of the American Indians, Edited by A. Grove Day
Poetry Chaikhana | Pawnee (Anonymous) - Let Us See

This is a good question to ask, and a prayer seems a good place to do it.

It is a prayer.
"why are we here?" a perennial question.

I've known this prayer, i think, for a dozen years.
Never posted it, it seemed too "simplistic"
It seemed to ask so little.
What did i know?!
