Religious admonitions
involve recognition of

some abiding truth about
the welfare of all people

followed by the reminder
to trust truth enough to mind

its light on life’s plight, delight.
Just so, life is short, one’s death 

can come on the moment’s spur:
here, now . . . when least expected—

so each one must come to see
through the eye of everyone

so to feel from the heart’s depths 
the way to the commonwealth.
