• I saw Eternity the other night, Like a great ring of pure and endless light, All calm, as it was bright, And round beneath it, Time, in hours, days, years, Driven by the spheres, Like a vast shadow moved, in which the world And all her train were hurled.

    Madeleine L'Engle (2008). “A Ring of Endless Light: The Austin Family Chronicles”, p.57, Macmillan
