If you mean "Being but Men" the piece in the promo narrated by Morgan Freeman, the poem is by Dylan Thomas:


Afraid, letting our syllables be soft

For fear of waking the rooks,

For fear of coming

Noiselessly into a world of wings and cries.


If we were children we might climb,

Catch the rooks sleeping, and break no twig,

And, afert the soft ascent,

Thrust out our heads above the branches

To wonder at the unfailing stars.


Out of confusion, as the way is,

And the wonder, that man knows,

Out of the chaos would come bliss.


That, then, is loveliness, we said,

Children in wonder watching the stars,

Is the aim and the end.


Being but men, we walked into the trees.
