                    What is the best that we can make of this?
                    Becoming wholly who we ought to be
                    Because there is no higher kind of bliss
                    Than realizing our capacity
                    For growth and learning as a human being
                    Employing talents with which we’re endowed
                    For greater doing and for farther seeing
                    While making our divine Creator proud.
                   I hope my turning verse like this may serve
                   That end and prove a worthy enterprise
                   By helping you and others to observe
                  The good that writing verse can realize.
                       If nothing else, the quest for beat and rhyme
                       Is an uplifting way to pass the time.
