We think we know the world around us
But inventions in High Tech astound us
This amazing planet where we live
Indeed has so much more to give.
The human eye, in all its glory
Only observes a partial story;
What lies within a drop of blood
A raindrop or a speck of mud?
Think spider's thread with gossamer feel
Minutely woven, tough as steel!
The nano technology microscope
Delves further than we dared to hope.
There's so much more than meets the eye
Keen scientists today can try
To make the invisible appear
So we can understand our Sphere.
A world unimagined - it's so small
Lies hidden, unbeknown to all
There's a logic in Earth's DNA;
Such precision takes Man's breath away.
