One must set
Beside the earth

In dismissal of its gravity

To know it indeed,
In purpose and intent.

It is difficult, you know.

That is water
To set aside;

That is matter.

That is man
To set aside;

That is love.

If one does
Not know the earth,

And is not high

In the stars,
In cosmic desertion

It is easy to fall

Victim to gravity
And lie

On but one isle,

Proclaiming it
The world

In its whole
