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