With all the blue ethereal sky,

    Amen! Very delightful write dear Joseph Addison. I loved the way you have worshiped the LORD ALMIGHTY by giving thanks and recognising God as is!

    Stay blessed. (Report) Reply

    Great poem indeed; some of those lines one would read from top to bottom without feeling tired but instead yearn for more. (Report) Reply

    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.

    Addison is saying that the way the universe is put together can only be by the hand of a great and devine intelegence, meaning God. The poetry is very good the way it is put together. (Report) Reply

    Brings into light the awesome power and beauty of GODS creation. A new novelty in that era, that the world was round and not flat. (Report) Reply

    I am not sure what Addison meant by 'Reason' if it hears the stars etc proclaim '
    'The Hand that made us is Divine.' This poem could be set to music as a hymn. (Report) Reply

    People used to write good poetry back then, and, just like in painting or music, they made religious facts a constant subject for that poetry. (Report) Reply

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
