Tread lightly in this world
That you may slip more easily
Into another; step soundlessly
That you may hear the music
Of both worlds: one world seamlessly
Woven within the other by one thread.
Dip fearlessly your toe
Into the river of eternal delight
And walk in wonder through
The forests of the night; seek wordlessly
The logos in the landscape; find
Infinity in the palm of your hand.
Two worlds in one: the lily
And the rose, the worm and the dove;
One world in two, both intertwined:
A double helix of grace and love.
Tread lightly in this world that you may know
How softly steps the unicorn in snow.
