Seven Generations


“Seven Generations” by Moira Smiley

Enjoy this performance from Singing the World Awake at the Ordway Concert Hall on May 12, 2023, the final concert of the 2022-2023 Season.



Shall we go on?
Shall we go on together?
(oh, it’s too hard alone)
I see the seven generations looking back this way.
My daughter tells me the future’s in my hands.
My granddaughter says the future’s in my heart.
My great grandson remembers my hands.
My great granddaughter holds my heart.
Remember your heart.
—Moira Smiley
