2 The FlyHow large unto the tiny fly Must little things appear!-- A rosebud like a feather bed, Its prickle like a spear;A dewdrop like a looking-glass, A hair like golden wire; The smallest grain of mustard-seed As fierce as coals of fire;A loaf of bread, a lofty hill; A wasp, a cruel leopard; And specks of salt as bright to see As lambkins to a shepherd.By Walter de la Mere
