More Than I Can Know

At dark-moon time
I look up at the stars,
Contemplate the thought
Of what I’m seeing,

And find I cannot grasp
The reality of that
Any more than I can grasp
What’s inside my fragile body.

Neither macrocosm
Nor microcosm
Makes sense to tender minds
Like mine or most –

To think I am a part
Of more than I can know
And more than I can know
Is part of me.
