Awakened to it from the womb
   And nurtured by it at the breast,
Dependent on it till the tomb,
   Our need beyond a cozy nest!
Of leaves and limbs, the mother tree:

We learned from others, not alone.
   Our single self is not the rule!
Upon a high and haughty throne,
   A reigning soul will play the fool
By treating with audacity

We find it not in mirrored looks
   Or journals penned by our own hands.
It thrives from reading ancient books,
   Connecting us by global bands
To timeless waves of history:

It twirls within our work and walk,
   An earning-spending form of dance.
It sings in chorus, lives in talk
   With those we meet by date or chance.
This deep and daily mystery?

Life interwoven never roams
   As isolated, island deeds.
Our neighborhoods, our schools, our homes,
   All ties of labor, commerce, creeds,
Announce one human destiny:


Seeya 'round town, Moscow, because . . .

"Moscow Cares" (the most fun you can have with your pants on)
