Beautiful poetry but I do not believe the sun and moon proclaim their origins as Joseph Addison implies, we watch observe listen to nature, impose meaning due to our own cultural beliefs, true understanding seems to lurk between scientific advancements and moments of eureka.
This is one of the most beautiful poems that I have ever read.
It tells of the universe and all of its wonderful attributes. Written
with pure love and admiration for planet earth. Excellent.
What I found intriguing is how the poet, Joseph Addison has dug out the second line ryhming perfectly in the meaning of the first line? But I believe master poets like Him are capable of picking a line out of wind, so to say.I found the poem very simple, yet very deep in meaning.
