Biodiversity And Its Survival
Interesting ‘modernisation’. ‘DIY’ Creed Making.
Where shall the human spirit turn
when ancient creeds are dead?
What shall our faith as fuel burn
when all our Faiths have fled?
We trust the human spirit still,
the tide that brought us here;
the sense of good, the human will,
to learn the way of care.
The way is hard and wrong is strong,
but we shall triumph yet,
as more will join the human song
to give, as much as get.
To seek the best in you and me,
to share and care for the earth,
to serve a new humanity
and bring world peace to birth.

The world is too much with us; late and soon,
Getting and spending, we lay waste our powers:
Little we see in Nature that is ours;
We have given our hearts away, a sordid boon!
The sea that bares her bosom to the moon;
The winds that will be howling at all hours,
And are up-gathered now like sleeping flowers;
For this, for everything, we are out of tune;
It moves us not; Great God! I’d rather be
A Pagan suckled in a creed outworn,
So might I, standing on this pleasant lea,
Have glimpses that would make me less forlorn;
Have sight of Proteus rising from the sea,
Or hear old Triton blow his wreathed horn.
William Wordsworth (1770-1850)
