(published January 25, 2001)
If The Earth Were a Glass Ball
by James Monteith

and we could see through it,
the people of Australia would appear
as if they were standing
or walking with their heads downward;

we would see the soles of their feet,
and they would see the soles of ours.

When we have day, the Australians have night.

This found poem originally ran as a footnote on page 90 of Barnes' Elementary Geography, by James Monteith; A.S. Barnes & Company, 1885.
