creation song

this is the choice that we defy the night

for a short time and keep alive a spark

timid perhaps but worthy to remark

a simple thing of note to honest sight

rejection of the vast kingdom of blight

a wisdom that calls on us to skylark

with laughter to ignore the final dark

empowering the fragile human light

each one is a beginning we are told

to be recorded and to be advised

of what's around below and what's above

to find out what is clay and what true gold

what's best admired and what's best despised

the fruit of all our hope and all our love

Preach, Fragano. Preach!
