Spiritual Laws by Ralph Waldo Emerson

There’s a law of the Spirit
can you hear it?

It doesn’t speak in Churches
filled with worthless wooden assets

It doesn’t speak in Temples
of constant donation requests

It doesn’t speak in Towers of pretense
It doesn’t speak in pompous Missus and Gents
It doesn’t speak your common sense
It doesn’t speak it torrents

It never forgets
but if you did then you probably can’t hear it
Quiet. Listen.
Put the TV on pause
and maybe you’ll find the Spirit of the Laws
