A Grain Of Sand

Rating: 3.4
If starry space no limit knows
And sun succeeds to sun,
There is no reason to suppose
Our earth the only one.
'Mid countless constellations cast
A million worlds may be,
With each a God to bless or blast
And steer to destiny.

Just think! A million gods or so
To guide each vital stream,
With over all to boss the show
A Deity supreme.
Such magnitudes oppress my mind;
From cosmic space it swings;
So ultimately glad to find
Relief in little things.

For look! Within my hollow hand,
While round the earth careens,
I hold a single grain of sand
And wonder what it means.
Ah! If I had the eyes to see,
And brain to understand,
I think Life's mystery might be
Solved in this grain of sand.

I hold a little grain of sand and wonder what it means... it's really hard to define significance of a little substance created by God. A can take deep dive into the philosophocal pool of this wonderful poem!

This reminds me of William Blake's celebrated verse: To see a world in a grain of sand/ and a heaven in a wild flower! Thought-provoking poem!
