                         Eventually we grow to be amazed
                         That anything at all exists, yet more,
                         That somehow in us consciousness has blazed,
                         And our inherent intellect can soar
                         To speculate, investigate and find
                         What ever-more revealing science shows
                         Of how the cryptic cosmos is designed
                         And even how the whole shebang arose,
                         Though science isn’t all we hope to learn,
                         Which tells us what & where & when & how,
                         For we still have an ultimate concern
                         That scientific strictures won’t allow:
                              Enlightenment means ultimately seeing
                              The wonder in the mystery of our being.
