      The Cosmic Mystery has brought us here,
      A mystery we fathom more and more
      As science makes its operations clear
      Exposing views we’ve never seen before:

      Through microscopes and telescopes we see
      Into the farther reaches of it all,
      While mind-expanding theories reveal
      Those things that used to puzzle and appall.

      But even with such wondrous enterprise
      And all of science’ prowess, can we know
      What source has ultimately given rise
      To this fantastic, marvelous cosmic show?

           Perhaps not science but the mystic mode
           May transport us down revelation’s road.
