I saw Eternity the other night,
Like a great ring of pure and endless light,
All calm, as it was bright;
And round beneath it, Time, in hours, days, years,
Driv'n by the spheres
Like a vast shadow moved, in which the world
And all her train were hurled.
--Henry Vaughan (1622-1695), _The World_ British poet
