Rekindling each day my sense of awe
And marvel at this vital, teeming Earth,
Despite the curse of Death’s all-ravening maw,
I praise and celebrate its wondrous worth.
Although our Source remains a mystery,
Good orderly direction nonetheless
Invests the Cosmos with fecundity,
Perhaps an entity we can address
As God or Lord and thus personify:
Our Father in the vaporous heavens above,
The ruler of all realms beyond our sky,
Whose principal command is that we love.
We are the creatures of Creative Mind
And to produce like wonders are designed.
