Enlightenment: Science in Sonnet Form
That knowledge, once a gem which few did see,
ignorant mystery lay neglected,
'till hard won by thoughtful
and reasoned methodology perfected.
Then, each new discovered jewel did catch the light,
Illuminating treasures in cascade,
and from each shinning
fragment polished bright,
a glittering crown of knowledge
we have made.
A crown for all to wear, that brings
its bearer all;
astronaut-astronomer, conqueror of disease,
monarch of the quantum realm and more,
of genetic seas.
Yet, after all these glories we
doubt not that still, the best is yet to come.
