Look to The Earth
Look to the Earth And to the Skies The Sun, the Moon, and to the Stars You who would be wise.
For they contain the full measure of man The height, the breadth, the depth, the span
Of his entirety.
Look to the Earth And to the Skies And watch them turn Like pages of a holy book
But one untouched by human hand You who would be wise.
Look to the Earth And to the Skies For in that which can be seen Without Can true knowledge come
Of unseen mysteries that lie Within To you who would be wise.
Look to the Earth And to the Skies In Spring and Summer, Winter and in the Fall.
Watch life begin, unfold, then fade and die To rise anew Time and again for Time Untold
You who would be wise.
Look to the Earth And to the Skies And in your looking, learn this mystery:
That you who look to the Earth And to the Skies
Shall be given eyes to see Shall be given eyes
To make you wise Eternally.
