ALL CREEDS IN ONE, by            
First Line: Child-like we grapple for the stars, the sun
Last Line: Men shall love man, life's one immortal creed.


Child-like we grapple for the stars, the sun,
Rend creed from creed with fire and shell and spear,
Creating chaos till our hate undone
Distorts a land once glad and prophet-clear.
How long shall lust for power make of our globe
A bloody shamble for the artisan,
The laborer where famine's scanty robe
Be all there is to warm the heart of man?

How long must war lay bare the harvest field,
And songs of hatred drive us toward decay?
Our psalms should be the sharing of earth's yield,
A living faith to fortify the day.
Within the dark awaits the glorious seed:
Men shall love man, life's one immortal creed.
