A SPECK ON THE DOT, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Maybe this world is the tiniest dot

Subject(s): Earth; Life Change Events; World

Maybe this world is the tiniest dot
In the limitless field of space
But at present it's all of the world I've got
And a curious sort of place;
And though I've been over its realms a bit,
There's plenty more left to see;
It may be a dot in the infinite
But a sizable dot to me!

Yes, I'm only a speck on the dot, they say,
But little enough I care,
I'm a speck that moves in its own sweet way
On the trails that I choose to fare;
And as long as the world has sights to view
Or mysteries left to know,
I'll do the things that a speck can do
And go where a speck can go.

So this infinitesimal dot, the World,
Seems wondrously big and strange
With the torrents of life about it swirled,
And its dramas that shift and change;
It'll take me all of my years to trace
The trails that are calling me.
And as for the trip through the rest of space
I've got all eternity.
