    And shall the earth
    Seem all of paradise that we shall know?
    The sky will be much friendlier then than now,
    A part of labor and a part of pain,
    And next in glory to enduring love,
    Not this dividing and indifferent blue.

    Deep in the human heart
    The fire of justice burns;
    A vision of a world renewed
    Through radical concern.
    —William L. Wallace (20th century)

    The pears are not seen
    As the observer wills.
