Mists of Dawn

Before the Age of Memory, the gentle Earthmother
breathed upon the golden mists of dawn.  Where the
amber clouds came to rest, there were endless fields
of flowing wheat and barley.  This was teh basin of her
works - the great basket of life and hope.
The Earthmother's eyes shone down upon the lands she
had breathed into creation.  Her right eye, An'she
(the sun), gave warmth and light to the land.  Her
left eye, Mu'sha (the moon), gave peace and and
sleep to the stirring creatures of the dawning.  Such
was the power of her gaze that the Earthmother closed
one dreaming eye for every turning of the sky.  Thus,
her loving gaze turned day into night for the first
dawning of the world.
While the right eye shone down upon the golden dawn,
the Earthmother's gentle hands spread out across the
golden plains.  Wherever the shadow of her arms passed,
a noble people arose from the rich soil.  The Shu'halo
(the tauren) arose to give thanks and prayer to
their loving mother.  There, in the endless fields of
dawn, the children of the earth swore themselves to
her grace and vowed to bless her name until the final
darkening of the world.
