Whether attributed to the one or
The contributing mouths of many,
The words remain the same;
Confirming the unending desire of
The human spirit: the requirement
And acquiring of love and peace
And complete honesty.
Serene in theory and direct in
Action, when acted upon directly,
Affecting the soul perfectly,
Converting the mass correctly.
In spite of the divisions and schisms of
Fallen empires and risen,
This is the paragon that remains
At the heart of our society;
Shaping the seasonal calendar
According to conditions, incorporating
Pagan traditions and Christian revisions,
Whilst producing the same conclusions:
Respect for the next human being,
And the panacea of love;
At one with the world we are in
And the one following.
