                    Just contemplate the fact that we are here

                    In all the vastness of the omniverse
                    And in the course of our earthly career
                    Should learn the secrets science can disburse,

                    But still there is a wonder we can feel
                    Though not explain: not what or how, but why—
                    Beyond the scope of science to reveal,
                    And yet where shrewd philosophers may pry,

                    Or canny theologians may divine,
                    Intuiting the essence of it all,
                    A source with which it’s wisest to align,
                    As once we did before our fabled Fall.

                         It’s only if our hearts can be inspired
                         That we shall find what we have most desired.
