                    With its imagination, your own mind
                    Can conjure pictures of what’s yet to be,
                    And thus our very future is designed
                    By this amazing human faculty.

                   By it we may foresee what doesn’t yet
                   Exist but may become creation’s goal,
                   Beyond what merely reasoning can beget—
                   Such glory is its visionary role.

                  “Suppose,” we say, “that such and such were so,”
                  And thus begins imagination’s quest
                  To figure out where reason ought to go
                  For our necessities to be addressed.

                       Most glorious of all our human gifts,
                       Imagination blesses and uplifts.
