Worlds

 For Alexander there was no Far East,
Because he thought the Asian continent
India ended.
Free Cathay at least Did not contribute to his discontent.
But Newton, who had grasped all space, was more Serene.
To him it seemed that he'd but played With several shells and pebbles on the shore Of that profundity he had not made.
Swiss Einstein with his relativity - Most secure of all.
God does not play dice With the cosmos and its activity.
Religionless equations won't suffice.
