Poem by Margaret Cavendish

What Atomes Make the Wind Collick

LOng aiery Atomes, when they are combin'd,
Do spread themselves abroad, and so make Wind:
Making a Length and Breadth extend so far,
That all the rest can neither go nor stir.
And being forc'd, not in right places lye;
Thus press'd too hard, Man in great paine doth lye.
