Marvels

by cricketjeff on March 23, 2008.  © Jeff Green, All rights reserved

There’s marvel in the things that we can see
And marvel in the things we only know
An atom has a lovely symmetry
A galaxy can make a perfect show

The smallest and the largest and the rest
Are worthy of our study endlessly
The universe is like a special test
The questions that it sets for you and me

I want to know the secrets of it all
To understand the greatest and the small

Author notes

In all things of nature there is something of the marvellous.

Aristotle
