I hail to you 

     sentient ones 

     keepers of the morning dew 

     masters of the web so 

     recently spun 

 

     hail to you 

     who dare submit 

     who dare feel and tell 

 

     hail to you 

     charmers 

     singers 

     jokers 

     lucky ones who 

     know the morning dew 

     for the sunrise comes 

     and the sunset 

     goes 

 

     so wail 

     cry 

     rant 

     try 

     each day is not an 

     entitlement 

     only the gift of 

     old 

     and young 

     and hope 

     hope for a stricken child 

     hope for a grandmother 

     hope for a prisoner 

     for we are all prisoners 

     and hope 

     that says indeed there is 

     a new law of God's physics 

     all that matters cannot be destroyed
