A Quote by Henry Vaughan on eternity, purity, time, and world

I saw Eternity the other night, Like a great ring of pure and endless light, All calm, as it was bright; And round beneath it, Time, in hours, days, years, Driv'n by the spheres Like a vast shadow moved, in which the world And all her train were hurled.

Henry Vaughan (1622 - 1695)
