Writing our own songs from the land, this is the high bar. This song was written in the UK during the first UK Art of Mentoring, July 2010 and performed by the first Ontario Art of Mentoring, August 2010.

White Horse Bridge

This is the land of the long setting sun
connecting my people as tribes, has begun
Come together as One

Dream our life that’s awaiting
Dream now awake
See skylarks and white horses rising
Calling our Name

Wheels within wheels we spiral around
soaring through sky and rooting in ground
Come together as One

Go to the hedgerows and hillsides
Elders rattle the bones
Peacemaking ‘wakes in the children
Calling our Name

    Loved the performance of ‘White Horse Bridge’!! That song has created a serious ear worm in our household. After AoM UK I was waking up in the middle of the night with this song going through my head. I would wake up in the morning and it was still going through my head! I finally stopped singing and humming it for a day, only to have it come back immediately because Elleanor was singing and humming it while she was playing. It has sunken in deep. Thanks Mark.
    With Gratitude,
