• And many kinds of creatures must have died,
    Unable to plant out new sprouts of life.
    For whatever you see that lives and breathes and thrives
    Has been, from the very beginning, guarded, saved
    By it's trickery for its swiftness or brute strength.
    And many have been entrusted to our care,
    Commended by their usefulness to us.
    For instance, strength supports a savage lion;
    Foxes rely on their cunning; deer their flight.
