Poem by Margaret Cavendish
What Atomes Make Life
ALL pointed Atomes to Life do tend Whether pointed all or at one end. Or whether Round, are set like to a Ring; Or whether Long, are roul'd as on a String. Those which are pointed, straight, quick Motion give; But those that bowe and bend, more dull do live. For Life lives dull, or merrilie, According as Sharpe Atomes be. The Cause why things do live and dye, Is, as the mixed Atomes lye.
