Страница 85 - For blindly, blindly, and without design, Did these first atoms their first meetings try; No ordering thought was there, no will divine To guide them ; but through infinite time gone by Tossed and tormented they essayed to join, And clashed through the void space tempestuously, Until at last that certain whirl began, Which slowly formed the earth and heaven and man.
