On the Anthropic Principle
If all was as it was at the beginning
Because its consequence must be its cause,
Being is but the foreghost of becoming,
Freedom the future source of present laws.
And if our ancestors must ratify
Their being by begetting memories,
They sing themselves to being as they die
And we fulfill their ancient prophecies.
And if this moment is the spring of what
Will one day call our moments into being,
They walk among us, potent, lovely, not
Yet born, and shape our seasons with their seeing.
