Subject(s): Earth; Life; Nature; Seasons; World


Two laws of motion rule our ancient eartth,
As part and parcel of a code sublime;
Existent at the planetary birth,
They must abide through all the scope of time: --
The one, diurnal, bringing dark and light,
With all of good the daily cycle shows;
The other, annual, spinning the flight
Around the sun, the seasons to disclose.
So, in the life of man, hold lasting sway,
Two forces, vast, to serve his dual need: --
One, temporal (as that for night and day);
The other (that as yearly) his soul must heed.
In faultless rhythm blind earth fulfills its plan;
To live by law, the task of sighted man!
