The Universe Within

I have the universe within me

It is a wonder of a thing

It borders with eternity

And carries me on wings



Its billions stars of fire

Its trillions moons of ice

Give rise to bright desire

Then drop to arctic vice




There gods consort with angels

There demons scheme a war

There Logos is no stranger

Truth there turns into lore




There emp’rors build their kingdoms

And priests anoint their heirs

There queens fight for the freedoms

That pauper peasants scare




I have the universe within me

Though others think me mad

“Too grand a thought, chéri”

“Come down to Earth, comrade”




To them I’ll lean in slyly

“A secret you I’ll tell:

This universe within me

Is within you as well”
