                    Love and affection are the highest kind
                    Of feelings for which humans are designed:
                    To treat another with humanity
                    Means demonstrating our true sanity;
                    Behaving otherwise means we are cursed
                    Descendants of that ancient fabled first
                    Two of our kind, who lost us Paradise
                    Because they let a wicked snake entice
                    Them into disobedience to God,
                    Who’d raised them to humanity from sod.
                    The best we can do now as recompense
                    Is to live lovingly and grow less dense,
                    Illumined as if by the sun above—
                    By the transcendent principle of Love.
