The Crux


The blue-jay and the blackbird

The mockingbird will tell

Better to think well of others

Than attract a ne’er-do-well


The butterfly and spider

Hard workers, you’ll hear said

Nature’s own soldiers

From pollen to the web


Enmity is shouting

Yet, silently, love grows

Teamwork wins out over hate

The night sky’s heart will show


That the Crux, though dim, is brightly lit

From southern hemisphere, in view

The essence of the resolute

Is the better part of you.
