This Lovely World

 

this lovely little world spins

at a rather astounding rate

we, living unfazed on its crust

travel an astonishing distance

without ever taking a step

to help

 

but wait

theres more

 

this lovely little world orbits

a far, but not too distant, star

taking us along on a journey

of over a quarter billion miles

every year back to the start

almost

 

but wait

theres more

 

this worlds star with its owned worlds

blisters both with heat and speed

every tick sees sixty go

every tock sees sixty more

to some star which when we arrive

has moved

 

but wait

theres more

 

Sir Edwins thought seems proved

though he himself less constant

this space through which we careen

in which all we know exists moves

like some endless rubber band

stretches

 

and yet

its less

 

mote-like within such vast expanse

course both topsy and turvy

moving as hither as thither

scarce giving pause to thought

and like more precipitous plunge

unfelt
