Toward heaven the thoughts of men turn;
away from the old, accustomed, used, previously
contrived, built up accumulation.

        Toward the clean, pure, in firmament shining,
warm true haven of mind and soul. The thoughts
of men and women turn towards the heavens,
their thoughts turn.

        Toward the clear, precise, reasonable,
prophetic and true, their thoughts turn.
