Invocation.

Speak to the world; publish and blazon forth

The truth again: remove False barriers; send down like April on

Bare boughs bright shoots of love. Scale from corroded minds the rust of thought;

Instil simplicity: Impel back to the fountain-head,

Source of the mystery All that is twisted, tired, lost in a maze

Or caught in treadmill rages; Unravel, guide, refresh, release;

Unfold unwritten pages. Sing of the wound in the heart of the world,

Expose it -- but to heal; Bridge all the gulfs that split our lives

And make us whole.
