Not everyone born human grows humane,
For Homo sapiens is far from wise
At birth and must assiduously attain
To higher consciousness to realize
Potentials furled in every human soul,
A spirit seed in need of nurturing
That without careful tending won’t grow whole,
An unfledged nightingale who cannot sing.
So any college that may hope to send
Its graduates beyond its gates prepared
To serve the world and deeply comprehend
Its needs will show that it has truly cared
Not only for their intellectual parts
But also for their glowing souls and hearts.
