A supreme harmonious unity
- an invariable order
so simple -
and yet - - so inevitable - -
the immutable interdependency
of all things upon all things
the fountainhead of life . . . .
must live at one within the realm
of tis cosmos . . . . .
No one thing shall overwhelm the earth -
for the miracle of the universe
keeps all things in balance . . . .
An inexplicable mystery prevents anything
from becoming dominate over all -
as one thing begins to become too powerful
its downward slide to devastation
has commenced . . . . .
- always - - the insects outlast the dinosaurs . . . . .
