Everything that is
Is meant to be this way –
The watchtowers of Cadiz,
The docks of Tiger Bay;

The floes of polar ice,
The equatorial heat;
The fertile fields of rice
And nothing left to eat.

Yet these are on a par
With what’s beyond our sight –
Each oh so distant star
And microscopic mite.

Which only goes to show
The bounds of what we know.
