"may my heart always be open to little
birds who are the secret of living
whatever they sing is better than to know
and if men should not hear them men are old

may my mind stroll about hungry
and fearless and thirsty and supple
and even if it's sunday may i be wrong
for whenever men are right they are not young

and may myself do nothing usefully
and love yourself so more truly
there's never been quite a fool who could fail
pulling all the sky over him with one smile"

My current roommate is English, born near Sherwood Forest, and summed up my religiousness as a method of learning to live and be nice to people. I balked at first and then thought, "love thy neighbor as thyself", "but the first of these is love", "Love, joy, peace, patience...", "as Christ who first loved us.. To live and to be nice. To love. Good morning. Good.
