The Swinging Universe - Poem by john tiong chunghoo

reading a 13th century poet
feeling the sun circling round me
and all the inaccuracies it cast onto me

reading a 20th century poem
feeling the earth circling round the sun
and all its limitations

reading a 30th century poem
feeling the whole universe circling round us
and the privilege to play with its power

reading a 40th century poem
feeling the privilege to swing the
whole universe around us
