In a drop of rain

In an Ocean

Vast

In a Sunrise or Sunset

In the stars as they're cast.

In the eyes of an infant

In the arms of its mother

In the tears of the lost

As brother finds brother.

 

In the feathers of a bird

In the ways of the beaver

In the dance of dolphins

And the web of the weaver.

God's wonders to share

In the world at our door

But the beguilers beguile us

And alas

We do war.

 

Their politics, religions,

Their riches and power

On the bones of the beguiled

They build Babel

the tower.

And in time towers fall

Which gives rise to others

And religions give birth

To more feuding brothers.
