do I weigh least at noon

when sun by pluck and earth by push

together conspire to remove me from this ball

or do I weigh least at night

when Earth its spin and curve about its Sun

work to throw me further than in the day


do I weigh most at night

when earth and sun united pull

at my feet to plant them firmly in this soil

or do I weigh most at day

when Earths orbit would press me close

to the soil that stops my outward leap


a multiplicity of forces

act on me each moment anew

were it not for the grace of God

I've no idea where I'd land


Do I Weight Least at Noon
