Why Should We Care that We Must Lose the Past?
|Why should we care that we must lose the
There are millennia we'll never know.
Nor can a truth in full regalia last
Longer than it takes the wind to blow.
Of course, there are the many things we learn,
Not to speak of curiosity;
But neither motivation makes us burn
With sacred lust at each discovery.
We feel there is a holiness in things
That witness bear to truth. For we, too, bear
Witness to the miracle that sings
Through every sense the wonder that it's there.
Sojourners all, we hold each moment dear,
Moved to honor all who have been here.
