A Raindrop Is as Wondrous as a Star

 Great and Small
by Charles Mackay

There is nor great nor small in Nature's plan,
 Bulk is but fancy in the mind of man;
 A raindrop is as wondrous as a star,
 Near is not nearest, farthest is not far;
 And suns and planets in the vast serene
 Are but as midges in the summer sheen,
 Born in their season, and that live and die
 Creatures of Time, lost in Eternity.

My eight-week course is reaching its last week, so posting will likely be sporadic over the next week as I grade, grade, grade.
