Author: Lewis Carroll  | Date: 1845


WERE I to take an iron gun,

And fire it off towards the sun;

I grant ’twould reach its mark at last,

But not till many years had passed.

But should that bullet change its force,

And to the planets take its course,

’Twould never reach the nearest star,

Because it is so very far.
