LIKE AN ANT TO JUPITER


Like an ant to Jupiter,
A tree from the rock
Of Gibraltar.

In all the known universe,
The priceless and awe-inspiring,
Occuring in size and symmetry.

From the elemental majesty,
Gravity and light’s sublime mastery.
We are infinitesimal tiny mysteries,

Designed by such love and power,
Able to contemplate, imagine, and feel!
Aspiring like a tree, briefly on a hill.
