See, thro' this air, this ocean, and this earth,
All matter quick, and bursting into birth.
Above, how high, progressive life may go!
Around how wide! how deep extend below!
Vast Chain of Being! which from God began,
Natures ethereal, human, Angel, Man,
Beast, bird, fish, insect; what no eye can see,
No glass can reach: from Infinite to thee,
From thee to Nothing! - On superior pow'rs
Were we to press, inferior might on ours;
Or in the full creation leave a void,
Where, one step broken, the great scale's destroy'd:
From Nature's Chain whatever link you strike,
Tenth or ten thousandth, breaks the chain alike.
