The world is filled with great beauty
      For all God's children to see;
      But many things pass unheeded
      If man holds to jealousy!
All jealousy and all hatred,
      And great bitterness of mind
      Will keep mortal man from searching,
      Nature's loveliness, to find!
His vision becomes distorted;
      He sees only what he thinks:
      If he thinks in terms of darkness,
      Shadows to himself he links!...
He surrounds himself with armor
      That keeps away rainbow lights
      And all harmony of color
      That could make his world so bright!
~Gertrude Tooley Buckingham, "Vibration of Music and Color" (1940s)
