So say (as some declare) that I won’t die
But carry on in a post-mortal sphere,
In which condition I’ll again know why
We spirits choose mortality right here.
I’ve heard we come for lessons we’re to learn,
To brighten up, like current in a wire,
Illuminating what’s our chief concern—
That holy Love beyond which nothing’s higher.
The same Good Orderly Direction that
Created out of nothing all that is,
With every creature that our Earth begat,
Is our Grand Father, and we all are His.
We know we’re here and know we’re called to grow
For our intelligence is meant to glow.
