Measurement by A.M. Sullivan

Stars and atoms have no size,
They only vary in men’s eyes.

Men and instruments will blunder
Calculating things of wonder.

A seed is just as huge a world
As any ball the sun has hurled.

Stars are quite as picayune
As any splinter of the moon.

Time is but a vague device;
Space can never be precise;

Stars and atoms have a girth
Small as zero, ten times Earth.

There is, by God’s swift reckoning,
A universe in everything.
