A Miracle, a Mystery, a Wonder:
This life that we Earthlings experience
Is surely not an accidental blunder,
Yet we don’t know the how, the why, the whence.
We’ve learned to make the best and worst of it,
Exploring every possibility,
Though still we don’t know what is requisite
To fathom this beguiling mystery.
What brought this vasty Cosmos into being,
And does it have a purpose or an end?
But yet for all our searching and our pleading,
We only guess at what it might intend.
My guess is that we’re rightly here to quest
And when we’re making sense, we’re at our best.
