Let's strive together, you and I,
Before our minds and muscles die,
I'll be Earth and you be Sky.
Reach out and clap your hand on mine;
We'll seal a tight horizon line
Where dawns will surge and days decline.
I'll work the stage; you work the lights;
We'll coach the actors through their fright;
We'll help their dramas play out right.
We, too, just players in a scheme
For energizing scripted dreams,
A faithful and untiring team.
Though perfect scenes we'll never see,
We can remake reality
On earth. We'll try, just you and me.
