Cavendish, Margaret (Lucas).

A warr with Atomes.

1653


SOme factious Atomes will agree, combine,
They strive some form'd Body to unjoyne.
The Round beate out the Sharpe: the Long
The Flat do fight withall, thus all go wrong.
Those which make Motion Generall in their war, [5]
By his direction they much stronger are.
