In the Center Atomes never Separate.

1653


JUst at the Center is a point that'ssmall,
Those Atomes that are there are wedg'd in all;
They lye so close, firme in one Body binde,
No other Forme, or Motion can unwinde:
For they are wreath'd so hard about that point, [5]
As they become a Circle without joynt.
