Of Many Worlds in this WorldJust like as in a nest of boxes roundDegrees of sizes in each box are found,So in this world, may many worlds more be,Thinner and less, and less still by degree.Although they are not subject to our sense, A world may be no bigger than twopence.Nature is curious, and such works may shapeWhich our dull senses easily escape.For creatures small as atoms may be there,If every atom a creature’s figure bear.If atoms four a world can make, then seeWhat several worlds might in an earring be.For millions of these atoms may be inThe head of one small little single pin.And if thus small, then ladies well may wearA world of worlds as pendants in each ear.-- Margaret Cavendish, 1653
