                  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.
