Evolutionary Hymn

Rating: 3.2

Lead us, Evolution, lead us
Up the future's endless stair;
Chop us, change us, prod us, weed us.

Lead us nobody knows where.

In the present what are they
while there's always jam-tomorrow,

While we tread the onward way?

By this analytical poem the poet clearly reveals the fact that evolution is modification and development for a better purpose in the life of the world! It kindles thoughts towards perfection indeed!

Good thinking material - and the quality you'd expect from Lewis.
