The miracle, the wonder of all this!
Eclipsed by what so often seems mundane
And yet is the epitome of bliss,
Though oft ignored or treated with disdain.
Why do we grow obtusely deaf and blind
To what from cosmic particles emerged
To be arrayed by some grand cosmic mind
While life of every kind on Earth diverged?
That mind we know as ours must reflect
The essence of what’s evident throughout
The universe: our mission’s to connect
With this generic Source and quell our doubt:
Once widening and deepening our ken,
Great secrecies will be illumined then.
