[tab id=1]H onour the Flesh the Spirit has breathed life into,
E ven in the most minute minute of your day,
A nd enjoy the indefinable infinity of being.
L earn how to join hands round the Word,
I n prayers with all the unearthly earthy creatures.
N ever run out of words, except when made ecstatically speechless.
G ive as much as you would like to be given.
P refer to exist laughing than rich,
O wing to poverties happily, constantly shared.
W onder at every spark of life:
E ternity is lodged in Time.
Remember to write to right the wrongs.[/tab]
