May the windows of this house be clear to the world's light: Whether of dawns or of daring, whether of sunsets or of stillness.
May the foundations of this house be firm upon the good earth: Whether of soil or of sharing, whether of bedrock or of behavior.
May the doors of this house be wide to all that come from afar: Whether poems or people, whether songs or strangers.
May this house embrace, like a graceful chalice, The flame it cannot define or limit, as a heart enshrines hopes larger than its beating walls.
