random thoughts: poetry meets maths

From http://www.shortpoems.org/poems/what_makes_good_poem.html :

A good poem should be able to lift the reader out of the ordinary and give glimpses of a more illumining reality.

To see a world in a grain of sand,
And a heaven in a wild flower,
Hold infinity in the palm of your hand,
And eternity in an hour.

– W.Blake.

But that’s exactly what maths is trying to accomplish :-)
