Sumptuous

.
.






After sleeping through a hundred million centuries
we have finally opened our eyes on a sumptuous planet,
sparkling with color, bountiful with life. Within decades
we must close our eyes again. Isn’t it a noble, an enlightened
way of spending our brief time in the sun, to work at
understanding the universe and how we have come to wake up in it?
This is how I answer when I am asked . . . why I bother to get up in the mornings.

-- Richard Dawkins
