Quantic Superstrings

                                         Quantic Superstrings   Now, Superstrings are incredible things      That cannot be measured nor weighed: They seem to exist for those theorists      Whose calculus methods betrayed Their sums would not fit — […]

The Promise

                               The Promise        There bloomed a halo round the moon last night; A paley circle of unbroken light      Some twenty moon-diameters across           At least and glowing in my startled sight.   […]


Snowflakes        The minute structure of each snowflake is so fine,           The intricate simplicity of its design      So exquisitely perfect in itself, Divine Intelligence, some think, must be its manufactury!.      For you could spend a lengthy lifetime looking through           […]
