Sonnet 161

There is no greater truth of he and she
That nature has enshrined in sands of time,
No greater fact that stands for you and me
And holds us in the unseen ties that bind;
The soundest proof is woven in life’s theme,
In all life’s forces blessed by Nature’s hand;
In actions of earth’s beasts and birds and bees,
And forms now mortared in hard stones of sand;
Though human lust may clothe a naked truth
And darkened hearts subvert life’s pristine light,
No twisted rantings here could ever move
That edict that four billion years made right-
But Nature does not judge by right or wrong,
As witnessed by past tales etched in stark stone.
