School Prayer by Diane Ackerman © 2000






In the name of the daybreak and the eyelids of morning and the wayfaring moon and the night when it departs,

I swear I will not dishonor my soul with hatred, but offer myself humbly as a guardian of nature, as a healer of misery, as a messenger of wonder, as an architect of peace.

In the name of the sun and its mirrors and the day that embraces it and the cloud veils drawn over it and the uttermost night and the male and the female and the plants bursting with seed and the crowning seasons of the firefly and the apple,

I will honor all life —wherever and in whatever form it may dwell—on Earth my home, and in the mansions of the stars.


From I Praise My Destroyer (Vintage Books, 2000)
