SHORT POEMS: “The Infinites of Matter” by Margaret Cavendish

The Infinites of Matter

If matter be no more than we do see,
This world, I pray, what must beyond it be?
For sure this world is limited and bound,
And like a ball is made in compass round.
And if that matter with which the world’s made
Be infinite, then more worlds may be said.
Then infinites of worlds there may be found,
If infinite of matter has no bound.
