I used to say I don’t like math
But today I say I do.
The stars at night like grains of sand 
Are as many as a few. 
And molecules once were mysteries 
Not long ago it seems.
Now I peer inside of them 
As if living in a dream. 
Where quantum leaps are giant peaks 
In atom-smashing realms;
Leading minds in space and time 
Where reality rose and fell.  
On this road of life from dark to light
Far stranger than its start;
When yesterday’s math was hell on earth 
Now it’s beauty, truth and art.

    I guess some brains co0e with the mysteries of this confusion better than others. My mind won't even open the door so hope for understanding is lost oneme. Anyhoo, you can take any subject and make it irresitible! Love, Lizzie

    Wow!!! I never thought I'd see maths lauded with such finesse. You have an easy rhythm-and-rhyme style which appeals. I'm off to read your other works. :)
