The Acts of a Sick Microbe

Robinson Jeffers (1887-1962), "De Rerum Virtute," § IV:
                                              Indeed it is hard to see beauty
In any of the acts of man: but that means the acts of a sick microbe
On a satellite of a dust-grain twirled in a whirlwind
In the world of stars ....
Something perhaps may come of him; in any event
He can't last long.
Id. § V:
One light is left us: the beauty of things, not men;
The immense beauty of the world, not the human world.
