The Birth Of A World

John Bannister Tabb

 Next Poem          

A hidden World,
Unwombing, hurled
From dark to light.
And to the skies
Its wondering eyes
The livelong night
Doth Science turn, with sighs
When shadows take their flight.

Another birth--
A soul to earth
But newly come!
Its destiny
With wonder dumb,
The heavens look down to see
Our faces turned therefrom.
