The Ascent

In those great sweeps of ambiguity,
the framers of our present Constitution defined for this nation,
by the ideals they have established for our Republic,
that great and abiding paradigm
of liberty for our people.

For these ideals guide,
as a unifying sense of vision and direction,
and give us counsel
according to (1) how we interpret our freedom,
(2) how we live it, and (3) how we learn it,
ever ascending with but one ascent to the truth.
