Prayer of the wind

Oración del aire written by Alvaro Solís
Translated from the Spanish by Marlen Zaragoza

May God save this ship crew 
from small waves and raging storms.
May his hand made of the night sky
cover us from the time we land
			till we enter harbor again.  
May God show us stellar maps 
hidden behind the blue sky.

But, above all, 
may God save us from ourselves.
