AN ATOM, by            
First Line: A white shaft falls athwart the universe
Last Line: Falls. It is night.
Subject(s): Atoms; Light; Universe

A white shaft falls athwart the Universe
And from the dark beyond drifts an atom
Into the light.

It whirls slowly round and round and in reverse,
And pauses momentarily, then to the bottom
Falls. It is night.
