How Large Unto The Fly

How large unto the tiny fly
Must little things appear!

A rosebud like a feather bed,
Its prickle like a spear;

A dewdrop like a looking-glass,
A hair like golden wire;

The smallest grain of mustard seed
As fierce as coals of fire;

A loaf of bread, a lofty hill;
A wasp, a cruel leopard;

And specks of salt as bright to see
As lambkins to a shepherd.
