        Without ingesting nutrients that nourish,
        No creature owns the vital means to flourish,
        Yet we, above all other species, need
        The nurturing of love on which to feed:
        It’s care, solicitude and kindness that
        Provisions best a humane habitat.

        The destiny for which we seem designed—
        The efflorescence of the human mind,
        Our blossoming into a species who
        Can hope to comprehend a cosmic view—
        Cannot succeed until we first impart
        The higher wisdom of the human heart
        To any enterprise we undertake
        For Heaven's first and then the future’s sake.
