1. The roots of all things interweave
and grow so close together
that when we pull the crowding weed
the wheat is also severed.

2. The hummingbird that works its wings
to hover near a flower
will aid the wind that drives the cloud
that forms the distant shower.

3. Along with God we co-create
a vast, connecting story
and shape a common destiny
and trail a common glory.

4. The world is one community,
bound root and soul forever;
and if we are to grow at all,
we all must grow together.
