How far is space?
Space is both there and here,
It seems far as that small star,
And yet as near as you, her dear;
It is as far as the wondering lane
And yet as near as swift flash of pain.
How long is time?
Time is both now and then.
It is as long as an endless song;
It is as short as what has been;
As limitless as immortal earth
And as soon ended as mortal mirth.
