ELECTRONS, by                    
First Line: Swirl and toss their lives away
Last Line: Somewhere, some time?
Subject(s): Atoms; Earth; Science; Space & Space Travel; World; Scientists; Outer Space; Fourth Dimension

Swirl and toss their lives away
In caged bodies magicwise
Yet rhythmic to one swing
Of you and me.
What shall it be?
Shall we move on into space, shall we?
As electrons grasp and greet our own
Uniting in perpetual rhythm of immutable law
Aeons-made and aeon-making?

Shall we know
As electrons know their own,
And shall we again meet and merge
Into a thing of beauty, earthborn,
Somewhere, some time?
