On the Prophets of Beauty

In ancient times the prophets were the wise —
They saw into the unity of things —
There’s nothing human they could not surmise —
They promised people but eternal Springs.

In modern times the prophets only know —
But knowledge brought a power and a call
For specialty, diversity to grow —
But somehow people felt it brought the Fall.

And now the time has come for prophets who
Preach beauty — wisdom, knowledge both combined —
To unify our senses with our reasons,
And show how old and now create the new,
So in this wealth humanity can find
Appreciation of all of the seasons.
