What Atomes make Flame.
THose Atomes, which are Long 3 , sharp at each end,
Stream forth like Aire, in Flame, which Light doth seem:
For Flame doth flow, as if it fluid were,
Which shewes, part of that Figure is like Aire.
Thus Flame is joyne'd, two Figures into one: 
But Fire without Flame, is sharpe alone.
3. These Atomes are halfe aiery Atomes, and halfe Fiery.
