Excerpt from Miscellaneous Poems
Who made all atoms who composed, Who formed, and who concreted?
Who made the worms to plough the earth, Before man was created?
Who was before man thought at all Of what composed His nature?
Material, spirit, tell me... what? Somewhat must have laid strata.
When man has found out all I ask, And answered all these queries, I want to know Where man will be If satisfied with theories.
Or, if a nobler brute will rise From dust he once was robed in, And think of him as but a worm, Once filthy garments clothed in.
Man may have found out much, I grant, And much more may discover.
